Is Neenah under- or over-valued?

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

Neenah's P/E ratio

Neenah's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Neenah shares trade at around 13x 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.

Neenah's PEG ratio

Neenah's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.85. 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 Neenah's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Neenah's EBITDA

Neenah's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$101.1 million.

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

Shorting Neenah shares

There are currently 284,898 Neenah shares held short by investors – that's known as Neenah's "short interest". This figure is 27.2% down from 391,517 last month.

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

Neenah's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Neenah's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Neenah shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Neenah shares traded daily (recently around 83303.50877193). Neenah's SIR currently stands at 3.42. In other words for every 100,000 Neenah shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3420 shares are currently held short.

However Neenah's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Neenah shares, or, against the total number of tradable Neenah shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Neenah's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Neenah shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0202% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Neenah shares, roughly 20 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 Neenah.

Neenah share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 76.42% of net profits

Recently Neenah has paid out, on average, around 76.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Neenah shareholders could enjoy a 3.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Neenah's case, that would currently equate to about $1.88 per share.

Neenah'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.

Neenah's most recent dividend payout was on 2 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Neenah share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Neenah's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.1659 up to $60.817. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NP.US volatility(beta: 1.53)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 Neenah's is 1.5342. This would suggest that Neenah's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
