Is Rayonier under- or over-valued?

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

Rayonier's P/E ratio

Rayonier's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 132x. In other words, Rayonier shares trade at around 132x 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.

Rayonier's PEG ratio

Rayonier's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.5345. 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 Rayonier's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Rayonier's EBITDA

Rayonier's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$275 million.

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

Shorting Rayonier shares

There are currently 2.2 million Rayonier shares held short by investors – that's known as Rayonier's "short interest". This figure is 15.6% down from 2.6 million last month.

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

Rayonier's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Rayonier's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rayonier shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rayonier shares traded daily (recently around 556412.46882793). Rayonier's SIR currently stands at 4.01. In other words for every 100,000 Rayonier shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4010 shares are currently held short.

However Rayonier's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rayonier shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rayonier shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rayonier's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rayonier shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0229% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rayonier shares, roughly 23 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 Rayonier.

Rayonier share dividends

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 4.36% of net profits

Recently Rayonier has paid out, on average, around 4.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Rayonier shareholders could enjoy a 3.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Rayonier's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.

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

Rayonier's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Rayonier's shares ever split?

Rayonier's shares were split on a 1339:1000 basis on 29 June 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1339 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Rayonier shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rayonier shares which in turn could have impacted Rayonier's share price.

Rayonier share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Rayonier's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.4694 up to $35.65. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RYN.US volatility(beta: 0.95)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 Rayonier's is 0.9465. This would suggest that Rayonier's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
