Is Lennox International under- or over-valued?

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

Lennox International's P/E ratio

Lennox International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Lennox International shares trade at around 26x 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.

Lennox International's PEG ratio

Lennox International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.6161. 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 Lennox International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Lennox International's EBITDA

Shorting Lennox International shares

There are currently 1.7 million Lennox International shares held short by investors – that's known as Lennox International's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 1.7 million last month.

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

Lennox International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lennox International's SIR currently stands at 5.51. In other words for every 100,000 Lennox International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5510 shares are currently held short.

However Lennox International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lennox International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lennox International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lennox International's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lennox International shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0499% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lennox International shares, roughly 50 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 Lennox International.
