Is Mattel under- or over-valued?

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

Mattel's P/E ratio

Mattel's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, Mattel shares trade at around 23x 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.

Mattel's PEG ratio

Mattel's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9036. 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 Mattel's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Mattel's EBITDA

Mattel's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $870.9 million.

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

Shorting Mattel shares

There are currently 16.1 million Mattel shares held short by investors – that's known as Mattel's "short interest". This figure is 7.6% up from 14.9 million last month.

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

Mattel's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Mattel's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mattel shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mattel shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Mattel's SIR currently stands at 6.54. In other words for every 100,000 Mattel shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6540 shares are currently held short.

However Mattel's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mattel shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mattel shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mattel's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mattel shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0462% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mattel shares, roughly 46 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 Mattel.

Mattel's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Mattel.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Mattel's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 12.07

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Mattel's overall score of 12.07 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Mattel is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Mattel's environmental score

Environmental score: 1.43/100

Mattel's environmental score of 1.43 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Mattel is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Mattel's social score

Social score: 8.71/100

Mattel's social score of 8.71 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Mattel is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Mattel's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Mattel scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Mattel hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Mattel share dividends

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

Have Mattel's shares ever split?

Mattel's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 3 March 1996. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Mattel shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mattel shares which in turn could have impacted Mattel's share price.

Mattel share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mattel's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.54 up to $22.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MAT.US volatility(beta: 1.51)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 Mattel's is 1.5098. This would suggest that Mattel's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
