Is Methanex Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Methanex Corporation's P/E ratio

Methanex 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 30x. In other words, Methanex Corporation shares trade at around 30x 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.

Methanex Corporation's PEG ratio

Methanex Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.98. 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 Methanex 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.

Methanex Corporation's EBITDA

Methanex Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $523 million.

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

Shorting Methanex Corporation shares

There are currently 1.4 million Methanex Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Methanex Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% down from 1.4 million last month.

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

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

Methanex Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Methanex Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Methanex Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 206126.33928571). Methanex Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.72. In other words for every 100,000 Methanex Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6720 shares are currently held short.

However Methanex Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Methanex Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Methanex Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Methanex Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Methanex Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0183% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Methanex Corporation shares, roughly 18 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 Methanex Corporation.

Methanex Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 78.95% of net profits

Recently Methanex Corporation has paid out, on average, around 78.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Methanex Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Methanex Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.15 per share.

Methanex Corporation'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.

Methanex Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
