Is PC Connection under- or over-valued?
Valuing PC Connection stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PC Connection's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PC Connection's P/E ratio
PC Connection's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, PC Connection shares trade at around 24x 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.
PC Connection's PEG ratio
PC Connection's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.62. 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 PC Connection's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
PC Connection's EBITDA
PC Connection's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $80.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a PC Connection's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting PC Connection shares
There are currently 302,067 PC Connection shares held short by investors – that's known as PC Connection's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% up from 299,895 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PC Connection shares can be evaluated.
PC Connection's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
PC Connection's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PC Connection shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PC Connection shares traded daily (recently around 45084.626865672). PC Connection's SIR currently stands at 6.7. In other words for every 100,000 PC Connection shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6700 shares are currently held short.
However PC Connection's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PC Connection shares, or, against the total number of tradable PC Connection shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PC Connection's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PC Connection shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0275% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PC Connection shares, roughly 28 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 PC Connection.

PC Connection share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 19.39% of net profits
Recently PC Connection has paid out, on average, around 19.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PC Connection shareholders could enjoy a 0.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PC Connection's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.
While PC Connection's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that PC Connection is investing more in its future growth.
PC Connection's most recent dividend payout was on 28 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have PC Connection's shares ever split?
PC Connection's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 23 May 2000. 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 PC Connection shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PC Connection shares which in turn could have impacted PC Connection's share price.
PC Connection share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, PC Connection's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.4101 up to $55.21. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
