Is Kenon under- or over-valued?

Valuing Kenon stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kenon's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Kenon's P/E ratio

Kenon's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Kenon shares trade at around 4x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Kenon's EBITDA

Kenon's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $51.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Kenon's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Kenon shares

There are currently 18,613 Kenon shares held short by investors – that's known as Kenon's "short interest". This figure is 73.1% up from 10,754 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kenon shares can be evaluated.

Kenon's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kenon's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kenon shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kenon shares traded daily (recently around 11489.50617284). Kenon's SIR currently stands at 1.62. In other words for every 100,000 Kenon shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1620 shares are currently held short.

However Kenon's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kenon shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kenon shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kenon's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kenon shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0011% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kenon shares, roughly 1 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Kenon.

Kenon share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 49.05% of net profits

Recently Kenon has paid out, on average, around 49.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kenon shareholders could enjoy a 9.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kenon's case, that would currently equate to about $1.86 per share.

While Kenon's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Kenon may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Kenon's most recent dividend payout was on 5 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Kenon share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kenon's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.3918 up to $43.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KEN.US volatility(beta: 1.11)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Kenon's is 1.1062. This would suggest that Kenon's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
