Is PetMed Express under- or over-valued?

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

PetMed Express's P/E ratio

PetMed Express's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, PetMed Express shares trade at around 23x 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.

PetMed Express's PEG ratio

PetMed Express's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.58. 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 PetMed Express's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

PetMed Express's EBITDA

PetMed Express's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $36.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a PetMed Express's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting PetMed Express shares

There are currently 4.7 million PetMed Express shares held short by investors – that's known as PetMed Express's "short interest". This figure is 8.7% up from 4.3 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PetMed Express shares can be evaluated.

PetMed Express's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PetMed Express's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PetMed Express shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PetMed Express shares traded daily (recently around 486146.95562436). PetMed Express's SIR currently stands at 9.69. In other words for every 100,000 PetMed Express shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9690 shares are currently held short.

However PetMed Express's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PetMed Express shares, or, against the total number of tradable PetMed Express shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PetMed Express's short interest could be expressed as 0.23% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PetMed Express shares in existence, roughly 230 shares are currently held short) or 0.2413% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PetMed Express shares, roughly 241 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 PetMed Express.

PetMed Express share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.02% of net profits

Recently PetMed Express has paid out, on average, around 1.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PetMed Express shareholders could enjoy a 4.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PetMed Express's case, that would currently equate to about $1.14 per share.

While PetMed Express's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that PetMed Express is investing more in its future growth.

PetMed Express's most recent dividend payout was on 20 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have PetMed Express's shares ever split?

PetMed Express's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 3 March 1999. So if you had owned 1 share 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 PetMed Express shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PetMed Express shares which in turn could have impacted PetMed Express's share price.

PetMed Express share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PetMed Express's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.75 up to $55.9832. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PETS.US volatility(beta: 0.58)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 PetMed Express's is 0.5816. This would suggest that PetMed Express's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
