Is Landstar System under- or over-valued?
Valuing Landstar System stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Landstar System's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Landstar System's P/E ratio
Landstar System's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Landstar System shares trade at around 25x 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.
Landstar System's PEG ratio
Landstar System's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3738. 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 Landstar System'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 Landstar System shares
There are currently 1.3 million Landstar System shares held short by investors – that's known as Landstar System's "short interest". This figure is 8.9% down from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Landstar System shares can be evaluated.
Landstar System's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Landstar System's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Landstar System shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Landstar System shares traded daily (recently around 289070.22727273). Landstar System's SIR currently stands at 4.4. In other words for every 100,000 Landstar System shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4400 shares are currently held short.
However Landstar System's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Landstar System shares, or, against the total number of tradable Landstar System shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Landstar System's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Landstar System shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0334% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Landstar System shares, roughly 33 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 Landstar System.

Landstar System share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 40.39% of net profits
Recently Landstar System has paid out, on average, around 40.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Landstar System shareholders could enjoy a 0.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Landstar System's case, that would currently equate to about $0.815 per share.
While Landstar System's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Landstar System may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Landstar System's most recent dividend payout was on 27 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Landstar System's shares ever split?
Landstar System's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 January 2005. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Landstar System shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Landstar System shares which in turn could have impacted Landstar System's share price.
Landstar System share price volatility
