Is La-Z-Boy Incorporated under- or over-valued?

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

La-Z-Boy Incorporated's P/E ratio

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.

La-Z-Boy Incorporated's PEG ratio

La-Z-Boy Incorporated's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.01. 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 La-Z-Boy Incorporated's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares

There are currently 2.2 million La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as La-Z-Boy Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 8.6% up from 2.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares can be evaluated.

La-Z-Boy Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

La-Z-Boy Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares traded daily (recently around 430289.08045977). La-Z-Boy Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 5.22. In other words for every 100,000 La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5220 shares are currently held short.

However La-Z-Boy Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case La-Z-Boy Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0514% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares, roughly 51 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 La-Z-Boy Incorporated.

La-Z-Boy Incorporated share dividends

20%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.8% of net profits

Recently La-Z-Boy Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 19.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), La-Z-Boy Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 1.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In La-Z-Boy Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $0.51 per share.

While La-Z-Boy Incorporated's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that La-Z-Boy Incorporated is investing more in its future growth.

La-Z-Boy Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have La-Z-Boy Incorporated's shares ever split?

La-Z-Boy Incorporated's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 14 September 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for La-Z-Boy Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted La-Z-Boy Incorporated's share price.

La-Z-Boy Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, La-Z-Boy Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.4167 up to $46.3739. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LZB.US volatility(beta: 1.09)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 La-Z-Boy Incorporated's is 1.0879. This would suggest that La-Z-Boy Incorporated'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).
