Is Miller Industries under- or over-valued?

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

Miller Industries's P/E ratio

Miller Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Miller Industries shares trade at around 14x 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 Miller Industries shares

There are currently 152,437 Miller Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Miller Industries's "short interest". This figure is 15% down from 179,235 last month.

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

Miller Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Miller Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Miller Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Miller Industries shares traded daily (recently around 28707.532956685). Miller Industries's SIR currently stands at 5.31. In other words for every 100,000 Miller Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5310 shares are currently held short.

However Miller Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Miller Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Miller Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Miller Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Miller Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0139% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Miller Industries shares, roughly 14 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 Miller Industries.

Miller Industries share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 29.1% of net profits

Recently Miller Industries has paid out, on average, around 29.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Miller Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Miller Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

While Miller Industries's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Miller Industries may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Miller Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 12 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Miller Industries's shares ever split?

Miller Industries's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 30 September 2001. So if you had owned 5 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 Miller Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Miller Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Miller Industries's share price.

Miller Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Miller Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.3134 up to $47.135. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MLR.US volatility(beta: 1.02)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 Miller Industries's is 1.0238. This would suggest that Miller Industries'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).
