Is O-I Glass under- or over-valued?

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

O-I Glass's P/E ratio

O-I Glass's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, O-I Glass shares trade at around 8x 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.

O-I Glass's PEG ratio

O-I Glass's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4193. 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 O-I Glass's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

O-I Glass's EBITDA

O-I Glass's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$866 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a O-I Glass's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting O-I Glass shares

There are currently 4.7 million O-I Glass shares held short by investors – that's known as O-I Glass's "short interest". This figure is 9.8% up from 4.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting O-I Glass shares can be evaluated.

O-I Glass's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

O-I Glass's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of O-I Glass shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of O-I Glass shares traded daily (recently around 833513.62831858). O-I Glass's SIR currently stands at 5.65. In other words for every 100,000 O-I Glass shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5650 shares are currently held short.

However O-I Glass's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of O-I Glass shares, or, against the total number of tradable O-I Glass shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case O-I Glass's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 O-I Glass shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0302% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable O-I Glass shares, roughly 30 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 O-I Glass.

O-I Glass share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 4.07% of net profits

Recently O-I Glass has paid out, on average, around 4.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), O-I Glass shareholders could enjoy a 2.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In O-I Glass's case, that would currently equate to about $0.05 per share.

While O-I Glass's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that O-I Glass is investing more in its future growth.

O-I Glass's most recent dividend payout was on 16 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

O-I Glass share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, O-I Glass's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.305 up to $14.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OI.US volatility(beta: 1.71)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 O-I Glass's is 1.7124. This would suggest that O-I Glass's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
