Is Mesa Royalty Trust under- or over-valued?

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

Mesa Royalty Trust's P/E ratio

Mesa Royalty Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Mesa Royalty Trust shares trade at around 11x 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.

Shorting Mesa Royalty Trust shares

There are currently 4,362 Mesa Royalty Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Mesa Royalty Trust's "short interest". This figure is 61.6% up from 2,699 last month.

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

Mesa Royalty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Mesa Royalty Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mesa Royalty Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mesa Royalty Trust shares traded daily (recently around 39654.545454545). Mesa Royalty Trust's SIR currently stands at 0.11. In other words for every 100,000 Mesa Royalty Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 110 shares are currently held short.

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

Mesa Royalty Trust share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 109.73% of net profits

Recently Mesa Royalty Trust has paid out, on average, around 109.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mesa Royalty Trust shareholders could enjoy a 5.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mesa Royalty Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $0.43 per share.

Mesa Royalty Trust'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.

Mesa Royalty Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 30 July 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Mesa Royalty Trust's shares ever split?

Mesa Royalty Trust's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 30 December 2013. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Mesa Royalty Trust shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mesa Royalty Trust shares which in turn could have impacted Mesa Royalty Trust's share price.

Mesa Royalty Trust share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mesa Royalty Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.43 up to $7.0424. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MTR.US volatility(beta: 1.12)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 Mesa Royalty Trust's is 1.1154. This would suggest that Mesa Royalty Trust's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
