Is Masco Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Masco Corporation's P/E ratio

Masco Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Masco Corporation shares trade at around 22x 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.

Masco Corporation's PEG ratio

Masco Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2021. 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 Masco Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Masco Corporation's EBITDA

Masco Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.5 billion.

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

Shorting Masco Corporation shares

There are currently 6.9 million Masco Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Masco Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 7.1 million last month.

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

Masco Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Masco Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Masco Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Masco Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Masco Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.7. In other words for every 100,000 Masco Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3700 shares are currently held short.

However Masco Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Masco Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Masco Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Masco Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Masco Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0307% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Masco Corporation shares, roughly 31 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 Masco Corporation.

Masco Corporation share dividends

12%

Dividend payout ratio: 11.79% of net profits

Recently Masco Corporation has paid out, on average, around 11.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Masco Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Masco Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.555 per share.

While Masco Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Masco Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Masco Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Masco Corporation's shares ever split?

Masco Corporation's shares were split on a 1138:1000 basis on 30 June 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1138 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Masco Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 12.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Masco Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Masco Corporation's share price.

Masco Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Masco Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.6795 up to $67.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MAS.US volatility(beta: 1.34)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 Masco Corporation's is 1.3433. This would suggest that Masco Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
