Is Myers Industries under- or over-valued?

Myers 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 16x. In other words, Myers Industries shares trade at around 16x 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.

Myers Industries's PEG ratio

Myers Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 14.87. 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 Myers Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Myers Industries shares

There are currently 661,122 Myers Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Myers Industries's "short interest". This figure is 31.2% up from 503,873 last month.

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

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

Myers Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Myers Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Myers Industries shares traded daily (recently around 107151.0534846). Myers Industries's SIR currently stands at 6.17. In other words for every 100,000 Myers Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6170 shares are currently held short.

However Myers Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Myers Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Myers Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Myers Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Myers Industries shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0286% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Myers Industries shares, roughly 29 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 Myers Industries.

Myers Industries share dividends

62%

Dividend payout ratio: 62.07% of net profits

Recently Myers Industries has paid out, on average, around 62.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Myers Industries shareholders could enjoy a 3.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Myers Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.

Myers Industries'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.

Myers Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 5 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Myers Industries's shares ever split?

Myers Industries's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 11 August 2004. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Myers Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Myers Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Myers Industries's share price.

Myers Industries share price volatility

This would suggest that Myers Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
