Is LCI Industries under- or over-valued?

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

LCI Industries's P/E ratio

LCI Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, LCI Industries shares trade at around 24x 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.

LCI Industries's PEG ratio

LCI Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.09. 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 LCI Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

LCI Industries's EBITDA

LCI Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$294.1 million.

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

Shorting LCI Industries shares

There are currently 753,707 LCI Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as LCI Industries's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% up from 730,809 last month.

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

LCI Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LCI Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LCI Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LCI Industries shares traded daily (recently around 113853.02114804). LCI Industries's SIR currently stands at 6.62. In other words for every 100,000 LCI Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6620 shares are currently held short.

However LCI Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LCI Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable LCI Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LCI Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LCI Industries shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0422% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LCI Industries shares, roughly 42 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 LCI Industries.

LCI Industries share dividends

49%

Dividend payout ratio: 49.04% of net profits

Recently LCI Industries has paid out, on average, around 49.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), LCI Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In LCI Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $3 per share.

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

LCI Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 18 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have LCI Industries's shares ever split?

LCI Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 8 September 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 LCI Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for LCI Industries shares which in turn could have impacted LCI Industries's share price.

LCI Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, LCI Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $54.2739 up to $136.87. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LCII.US volatility(beta: 1.61)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 LCI Industries's is 1.6131. This would suggest that LCI Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
