Is Lydall under- or over-valued?

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

Lydall's P/E ratio

Lydall's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 101x. In other words, Lydall shares trade at around 101x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Lydall's PEG ratio

Lydall's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.15. 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 Lydall's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Lydall's EBITDA

Lydall's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $109.6 million.

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

Shorting Lydall shares

There are currently 660,188 Lydall shares held short by investors – that's known as Lydall's "short interest". This figure is 75.9% up from 375,321 last month.

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

Lydall's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lydall's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lydall shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lydall shares traded daily (recently around 725481.31868132). Lydall's SIR currently stands at 0.91. In other words for every 100,000 Lydall shares traded daily on the market, roughly 910 shares are currently held short.

However Lydall's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lydall shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lydall shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lydall's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lydall shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0194% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lydall shares, roughly 19 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 Lydall.

Lydall share dividends

We're not expecting Lydall to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Lydall's shares ever split?

Lydall's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 June 1995. 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 Lydall shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lydall shares which in turn could have impacted Lydall's share price.

Lydall share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lydall's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.73 up to $61.82. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Lydall's is 3.1088. This would suggest that Lydall's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
