Is Park-Ohio under- or over-valued?

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

Park-Ohio's P/E ratio

Park-Ohio's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 56x. In other words, Park-Ohio shares trade at around 56x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Park-Ohio's PEG ratio

Park-Ohio's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.09. 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 Park-Ohio's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Park-Ohio's EBITDA

Park-Ohio's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$66.9 million.

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

Shorting Park-Ohio shares

There are currently 132,951 Park-Ohio shares held short by investors – that's known as Park-Ohio's "short interest". This figure is 11.9% down from 150,842 last month.

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

Park-Ohio's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Park-Ohio's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Park-Ohio shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Park-Ohio shares traded daily (recently around 30704.618937644). Park-Ohio's SIR currently stands at 4.33. In other words for every 100,000 Park-Ohio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4330 shares are currently held short.

However Park-Ohio's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Park-Ohio shares, or, against the total number of tradable Park-Ohio shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Park-Ohio's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Park-Ohio shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0182% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Park-Ohio shares, roughly 18 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 Park-Ohio.

Park-Ohio share dividends

We're not expecting Park-Ohio to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Park-Ohio's shares ever split?

Park-Ohio's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 April 1981. 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 Park-Ohio shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Park-Ohio shares which in turn could have impacted Park-Ohio's share price.

Park-Ohio share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Park-Ohio's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.6844 up to $34.2626. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PKOH.US volatility(beta: 1.57)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 Park-Ohio's is 1.5731. This would suggest that Park-Ohio's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
