Is RCI Hospitality under- or over-valued?

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

RCI Hospitality's P/E ratio

RCI Hospitality's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, RCI Hospitality shares trade at around 25x 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.

RCI Hospitality's PEG ratio

RCI Hospitality's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4696. 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 RCI Hospitality's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

RCI Hospitality's EBITDA

RCI Hospitality's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $46.7 million.

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

Shorting RCI Hospitality shares

There are currently 252,838 RCI Hospitality shares held short by investors – that's known as RCI Hospitality's "short interest". This figure is 8.5% down from 276,201 last month.

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

RCI Hospitality's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

RCI Hospitality's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RCI Hospitality shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RCI Hospitality shares traded daily (recently around 52024.279835391). RCI Hospitality's SIR currently stands at 4.86. In other words for every 100,000 RCI Hospitality shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4860 shares are currently held short.

However RCI Hospitality's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RCI Hospitality shares, or, against the total number of tradable RCI Hospitality shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RCI Hospitality's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RCI Hospitality shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0375% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RCI Hospitality shares, roughly 38 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 RCI Hospitality.

RCI Hospitality share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 6.04% of net profits

Recently RCI Hospitality has paid out, on average, around 6.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), RCI Hospitality shareholders could enjoy a 0.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RCI Hospitality's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.

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

RCI Hospitality's most recent dividend payout was on 26 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have RCI Hospitality's shares ever split?

RCI Hospitality's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 15 March 1999. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your RCI Hospitality shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for RCI Hospitality shares which in turn could have impacted RCI Hospitality's share price.

RCI Hospitality share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, RCI Hospitality's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.5245 up to $81.5578. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
