Is Moog under- or over-valued?

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

Moog's P/E ratio

Moog's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 58x. In other words, Moog shares trade at around 58x 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.


Moog's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $319 million.

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

Shorting Moog shares

There are currently 686,039 Moog shares held short by investors – that's known as Moog's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% down from 704,991 last month.

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

Moog's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Moog's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Moog shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Moog shares traded daily (recently around 118691.86851211). Moog's SIR currently stands at 5.78. In other words for every 100,000 Moog shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5780 shares are currently held short.

However Moog's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Moog shares, or, against the total number of tradable Moog shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Moog's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Moog shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0233% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Moog shares, roughly 23 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 Moog.

Moog share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.69% of net profits

Recently Moog has paid out, on average, around 21.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Moog shareholders could enjoy a 1.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Moog's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

While Moog's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Moog is investing more in its future growth.

Moog's most recent dividend payout was on 29 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Moog's shares ever split?

Moog's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 3 April 2005. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Moog shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Moog shares which in turn could have impacted Moog's share price.

Moog share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Moog's shares have ranged in value from as little as $59.2605 up to $91.6535. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MOG-A.US volatility(beta: 1.46)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 Moog's is 1.4577. This would suggest that Moog's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
