Is National Beverage under- or over-valued?

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

National Beverage's P/E ratio

National Beverage's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, National Beverage shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

National Beverage's PEG ratio

National Beverage's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.2954. 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 National Beverage's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

National Beverage's EBITDA

National Beverage's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $249.6 million.

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

Shorting National Beverage shares

There are currently 6.1 million National Beverage shares held short by investors – that's known as National Beverage's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 6.3 million last month.

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

National Beverage's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

National Beverage's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of National Beverage shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of National Beverage shares traded daily (recently around 226497.46646796). National Beverage's SIR currently stands at 26.84. In other words for every 100,000 National Beverage shares traded daily on the market, roughly 26840 shares are currently held short.

However National Beverage's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of National Beverage shares, or, against the total number of tradable National Beverage shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case National Beverage's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 National Beverage shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.2595% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable National Beverage shares, roughly 260 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against National Beverage.

National Beverage share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.23% of net profits

Recently National Beverage has paid out, on average, around 1.23% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), National Beverage shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In National Beverage's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.

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

National Beverage's most recent dividend payout was on 28 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have National Beverage's shares ever split?

National Beverage's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 February 2021. 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 National Beverage shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for National Beverage shares which in turn could have impacted National Beverage's share price.

National Beverage share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, National Beverage's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.9138 up to $98.215. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FIZZ.US volatility(beta: 1.09)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while National Beverage's is 1.0928. This would suggest that National Beverage'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).
