Is PACCAR under- or over-valued?
Valuing PACCAR stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PACCAR's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PACCAR's P/E ratio
PACCAR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, PACCAR shares trade at around 17x 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.
PACCAR's PEG ratio
PACCAR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9747. 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 PACCAR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
PACCAR's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a PACCAR's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

|Operating margin TTM||10.06%|
|Gross profit TTM||$2.3 billion|

Shorting PACCAR shares
There are currently 5.4 million PACCAR shares held short by investors – that's known as PACCAR's "short interest". This figure is 14.6% up from 4.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PACCAR shares can be evaluated.
PACCAR's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
PACCAR's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PACCAR shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PACCAR shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). PACCAR's SIR currently stands at 3.06. In other words for every 100,000 PACCAR shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3060 shares are currently held short.
However PACCAR's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PACCAR shares, or, against the total number of tradable PACCAR shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PACCAR's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PACCAR shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0158% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PACCAR shares, roughly 16 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 PACCAR.

PACCAR's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like PACCAR.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
PACCAR's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 33.96
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and PACCAR's overall score of 33.96 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 73rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like PACCAR is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
PACCAR's environmental score
Environmental score: 9.32/100
PACCAR's environmental score of 9.32 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that PACCAR is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
PACCAR's social score
Social score: 16.26/100
PACCAR's social score of 16.26 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that PACCAR is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
PACCAR's governance score
Governance score: 7.38/100
PACCAR's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that PACCAR is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
PACCAR's controversy score
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. PACCAR scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that PACCAR hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

PACCAR share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 46.83% of net profits
Recently PACCAR has paid out, on average, around 46.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PACCAR shareholders could enjoy a 1.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PACCAR's case, that would currently equate to about $1.3 per share.
While PACCAR's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that PACCAR may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
PACCAR's most recent dividend payout was on 7 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have PACCAR's shares ever split?
PACCAR's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 9 October 2007. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your PACCAR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PACCAR shares which in turn could have impacted PACCAR's share price.
PACCAR share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, PACCAR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $78.8874 up to $101.0924. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while PACCAR's is 1.0245. This would suggest that PACCAR'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).
