Is Mesabi Trust under- or over-valued?

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

Mesabi Trust's P/E ratio

Mesabi 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 21x. In other words, Mesabi Trust shares trade at around 21x 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 Mesabi Trust shares

There are currently 56,463 Mesabi Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Mesabi Trust's "short interest". This figure is 173.3% up from 20,656 last month.

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

Mesabi Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Mesabi Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mesabi Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mesabi Trust shares traded daily (recently around 42775). Mesabi Trust's SIR currently stands at 1.32. In other words for every 100,000 Mesabi Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1320 shares are currently held short.

However Mesabi Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mesabi Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mesabi Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mesabi Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mesabi Trust shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0043% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mesabi Trust shares, roughly 4 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 Mesabi Trust.

Mesabi Trust share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 110.84% of net profits

Recently Mesabi Trust has paid out, on average, around 110.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mesabi Trust shareholders could enjoy a 5.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mesabi Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $1.67 per share.

Mesabi 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.

Mesabi Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 21 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Mesabi Trust share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mesabi Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.0696 up to $29.7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MSB.US volatility(beta: 1.1)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 Mesabi Trust's is 1.1018. This would suggest that Mesabi 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).
