Is Pentair under- or over-valued?
Valuing Pentair stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Pentair's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Pentair's P/E ratio
Pentair's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Pentair shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Pentair's PEG ratio
Pentair's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7549. 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 Pentair's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Pentair's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $605.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Pentair's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Pentair shares
There are currently 3.7 million Pentair shares held short by investors – that's known as Pentair's "short interest". This figure is 11.9% up from 3.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pentair shares can be evaluated.
Pentair's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Pentair's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pentair shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pentair shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Pentair's SIR currently stands at 3.54. In other words for every 100,000 Pentair shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3540 shares are currently held short.
However Pentair's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pentair shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pentair shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pentair's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pentair shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0221% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pentair shares, roughly 22 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 Pentair.

Pentair'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 Pentair.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Pentair's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 33.42
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Pentair's overall score of 33.42 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 69th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Pentair 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.).
Pentair's environmental score
Environmental score: 10.81/100
Pentair's environmental score of 10.81 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Pentair is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Pentair's social score
Social score: 15.03/100
Pentair's social score of 15.03 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Pentair is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Pentair share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 28.21% of net profits
Recently Pentair has paid out, on average, around 28.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pentair shareholders could enjoy a 1.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pentair's case, that would currently equate to about $0.77 per share.
While Pentair's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Pentair may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Pentair's most recent dividend payout was on 5 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Pentair's shares ever split?
Pentair's shares were split on a 1489:1000 basis on 30 April 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1489 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Pentair shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 32.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pentair shares which in turn could have impacted Pentair's share price.
Pentair share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Pentair's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.5904 up to $71. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Pentair's is 1.1376. This would suggest that Pentair'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).
