Is Polaris under- or over-valued?

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

Polaris's P/E ratio

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

Polaris's PEG ratio

Polaris's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2323. 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 Polaris's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Polaris's EBITDA

Polaris's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.2 billion.

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

Shorting Polaris shares

There are currently 3.9 million Polaris shares held short by investors – that's known as Polaris's "short interest". This figure is 4.4% down from 4.0 million last month.

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

Polaris's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Polaris's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Polaris shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Polaris shares traded daily (recently around 460840.88200238). Polaris's SIR currently stands at 8.39. In other words for every 100,000 Polaris shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8390 shares are currently held short.

However Polaris's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Polaris shares, or, against the total number of tradable Polaris shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Polaris's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Polaris shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0682% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Polaris shares, roughly 68 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 Polaris.

Polaris'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 Polaris.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Polaris's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 11.44

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Polaris's overall score of 11.44 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Polaris 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.).

Polaris's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.21/100

Polaris share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.43% of net profits

Recently Polaris has paid out, on average, around 22.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Polaris shareholders could enjoy a 2.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Polaris's case, that would currently equate to about $2.5 per share.

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

Polaris's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Polaris's shares ever split?

Polaris's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 September 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Polaris shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Polaris shares which in turn could have impacted Polaris's share price.

Polaris share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Polaris's shares have ranged in value from as little as $84.8125 up to $146.2758. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PII.US volatility(beta: 1.95)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Polaris's is 1.9465. This would suggest that Polaris's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
