Is Raven Industries under- or over-valued?

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

Raven Industries's P/E ratio

Raven Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 82x. In other words, Raven Industries shares trade at around 82x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Raven Industries's PEG ratio

Raven Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.5556. 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 Raven Industries'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 Raven Industries shares

There are currently 1.7 million Raven Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Raven Industries's "short interest". This figure is 16.3% down from 2.0 million last month.

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

Raven Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Raven Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Raven Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Raven Industries shares traded daily (recently around 128552.71084337). Raven Industries's SIR currently stands at 13.28. In other words for every 100,000 Raven Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13280 shares are currently held short.

However Raven Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Raven Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Raven Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Raven Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Raven Industries shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0514% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Raven Industries shares, roughly 51 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Raven Industries.

Raven Industries share dividends

We're not expecting Raven Industries to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Raven Industries's shares ever split?

Raven Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 July 2012. 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 Raven Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Raven Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Raven Industries's share price.

Raven Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Raven Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.3143 up to $59.595. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RAVN.US volatility(beta: 1.49)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 Raven Industries's is 1.4878. This would suggest that Raven Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
