Is RELX under- or over-valued?
Valuing RELX stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of RELX's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
RELX's P/E ratio
RELX's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, RELX shares trade at around 34x 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.
RELX's PEG ratio
RELX's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.4213. 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 RELX's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
RELX's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a RELX's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$7.1 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||23.66%|
|Gross profit TTM||$4.6 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||7.53%|
|Return on equity TTM||56.3%|
|Market capitalisation||$57.3 billion|

Shorting RELX shares
There are currently 1.7 million RELX shares held short by investors – that's known as RELX's "short interest". This figure is 22.1% up from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting RELX shares can be evaluated.
RELX's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
RELX's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RELX shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RELX shares traded daily (recently around 779736.32286996). RELX's SIR currently stands at 2.23. In other words for every 100,000 RELX shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2230 shares are currently held short.
However RELX's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RELX shares, or, against the total number of tradable RELX shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RELX's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RELX shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0009% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RELX shares, roughly 1 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 RELX.

RELX share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 3.57% of net profits
Recently RELX has paid out, on average, around 3.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), RELX shareholders could enjoy a 2.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RELX's case, that would currently equate to about $0.47 per share.
While RELX's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that RELX is investing more in its future growth.
RELX's most recent dividend payout was on 7 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have RELX's shares ever split?
RELX's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 30 June 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your RELX shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for RELX shares which in turn could have impacted RELX's share price.
RELX share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, RELX's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.1786 up to $29.74. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while RELX's is 0.5126. This would suggest that RELX's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
