Is Knoll under- or over-valued?

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

Knoll's PEG ratio

Knoll's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.91. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Knoll's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Knoll's EBITDA

Knoll's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $103.1 million.

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

Shorting Knoll shares

There are currently 3.1 million Knoll shares held short by investors – that's known as Knoll's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% up from 3.1 million last month.

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

Knoll's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Knoll's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Knoll shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Knoll shares traded daily (recently around 510828.87788779). Knoll's SIR currently stands at 6.06. In other words for every 100,000 Knoll shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6060 shares are currently held short.

However Knoll's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Knoll shares, or, against the total number of tradable Knoll shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Knoll's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Knoll shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0785% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Knoll shares, roughly 79 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Knoll.

Knoll share dividends

59%

Dividend payout ratio: 58.54% of net profits

Recently Knoll has paid out, on average, around 58.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Knoll shareholders could enjoy a 0.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Knoll's case, that would currently equate to about $0.22 per share.

Knoll's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Knoll's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Knoll share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Knoll's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.665 up to $27.2393. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KNL.US volatility(beta: 2.07)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 Knoll's is 2.0669. This would suggest that Knoll's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
