Is Magic Software Enterprises under- or over-valued?

Magic Software Enterprises's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Magic Software Enterprises shares trade at around 34x 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.

Magic Software Enterprises's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Magic Software Enterprises'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 Magic Software Enterprises shares

There are currently 54,859 Magic Software Enterprises shares held short by investors – that's known as Magic Software Enterprises's "short interest". This figure is 72% up from 31,900 last month.

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

Magic Software Enterprises's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Magic Software Enterprises's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Magic Software Enterprises shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Magic Software Enterprises shares traded daily (recently around 38633.098591549). Magic Software Enterprises's SIR currently stands at 1.42. In other words for every 100,000 Magic Software Enterprises shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1420 shares are currently held short.

However Magic Software Enterprises's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Magic Software Enterprises shares, or, against the total number of tradable Magic Software Enterprises shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Magic Software Enterprises's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Magic Software Enterprises shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0021% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Magic Software Enterprises shares, roughly 2 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 Magic Software Enterprises.

Magic Software Enterprises share dividends

63%

Dividend payout ratio: 63.11% of net profits

Recently Magic Software Enterprises has paid out, on average, around 63.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Magic Software Enterprises shareholders could enjoy a 2.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Magic Software Enterprises's case, that would currently equate to about $0.385 per share.

Magic Software Enterprises's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Magic Software Enterprises's most recent dividend payout was on 6 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Magic Software Enterprises's shares ever split?

Magic Software Enterprises's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 13 February 2000. 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 Magic Software Enterprises shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Magic Software Enterprises shares which in turn could have impacted Magic Software Enterprises's share price.

Magic Software Enterprises share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Magic Software Enterprises's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.8217 up to $18.1227. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MGIC.US volatility(beta: 1.38)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Magic Software Enterprises's is 1.3814. This would suggest that Magic Software Enterprises's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
