Is Navient Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Navient Corporation's P/E ratio

Navient Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Navient Corporation shares trade at around 4x 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.

Navient Corporation's PEG ratio

Navient Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.142. 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 Navient Corporation'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 Navient Corporation shares

There are currently 6.0 million Navient Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Navient Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 16.6% down from 7.2 million last month.

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

Navient Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Navient Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Navient Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Navient Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Navient Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.49. In other words for every 100,000 Navient Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2490 shares are currently held short.

However Navient Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Navient Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Navient Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Navient Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Navient Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0367% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Navient Corporation shares, roughly 37 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Navient Corporation.

Navient Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 13.65% of net profits

Recently Navient Corporation has paid out, on average, around 13.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Navient Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Navient Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.

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

Navient Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 16 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Navient Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Navient Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.5438 up to $23.8. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NAVI.US volatility(beta: 1.87)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 Navient Corporation's is 1.8709. This would suggest that Navient Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
