Is PJT Partners under- or over-valued?

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

PJT Partners's P/E ratio

PJT Partners's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, PJT Partners shares trade at around 16x 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.

PJT Partners's PEG ratio

PJT Partners's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.36. 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 PJT Partners's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting PJT Partners shares

There are currently 654,444 PJT Partners shares held short by investors – that's known as PJT Partners's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% up from 629,705 last month.

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

PJT Partners's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PJT Partners's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PJT Partners shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PJT Partners shares traded daily (recently around 154350). PJT Partners's SIR currently stands at 4.24. In other words for every 100,000 PJT Partners shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4240 shares are currently held short.

However PJT Partners's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PJT Partners shares, or, against the total number of tradable PJT Partners shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PJT Partners's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PJT Partners shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0307% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PJT Partners shares, roughly 31 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 PJT Partners.

PJT Partners share dividends

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 3.95% of net profits

Recently PJT Partners has paid out, on average, around 3.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PJT Partners shareholders could enjoy a 0.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PJT Partners's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

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

PJT Partners's most recent dividend payout was on 15 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

PJT Partners share price volatility
