Is Movado Group under- or over-valued?

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

Movado Group's P/E ratio

Movado Group'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, Movado Group 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.

Movado Group's PEG ratio

Movado Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.16. 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 Movado Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Movado Group's EBITDA

Movado Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $96.3 million.

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

Shorting Movado Group shares

There are currently 876,332 Movado Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Movado Group's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% down from 888,939 last month.

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

Movado Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Movado Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Movado Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Movado Group shares traded daily (recently around 138222.71293375). Movado Group's SIR currently stands at 6.34. In other words for every 100,000 Movado Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6340 shares are currently held short.

However Movado Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Movado Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Movado Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Movado Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Movado Group shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0531% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Movado Group shares, roughly 53 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 Movado Group.

Movado Group share dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 24.82% of net profits

Recently Movado Group has paid out, on average, around 24.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Movado Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Movado Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

Movado Group's most recent dividend payout was on 21 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Movado Group's shares ever split?

Movado Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 June 2004. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Movado Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Movado Group shares which in turn could have impacted Movado Group's share price.

Movado Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Movado Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.5366 up to $37.9186. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MOV.US volatility(beta: 1.29)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 Movado Group's is 1.2905. This would suggest that Movado Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
