Is Parker-Hannifin Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Shorting Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares

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

Parker-Hannifin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Parker-Hannifin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million).

In other words for every 100,000 Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 850 shares are currently held short.

In this case Parker-Hannifin Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0076% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares, roughly 8 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 Parker-Hannifin Corporation.

Recently Parker-Hannifin Corporation has paid out, on average, around 25.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.42% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Parker-Hannifin Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.42% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Parker-Hannifin Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3.67 per share.

While Parker-Hannifin Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Parker-Hannifin Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Have Parker-Hannifin Corporation's shares ever split?

Parker-Hannifin Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 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 Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Parker-Hannifin Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Parker-Hannifin Corporation's share price.

Parker-Hannifin Corporation share price volatility

This would suggest that Parker-Hannifin 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).
