Is Resources Connection under- or over-valued?

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.

Shorting Resources Connection shares

There are currently 362,621 Resources Connection shares held short by investors – that's known as Resources Connection's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% up from 356,717 last month.

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

Resources Connection's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Resources Connection's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Resources Connection shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Resources Connection shares traded daily (recently around 185959.48717949). Resources Connection's SIR currently stands at 1.95. In other words for every 100,000 Resources Connection shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1950 shares are currently held short.

However Resources Connection's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Resources Connection shares, or, against the total number of tradable Resources Connection shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Resources Connection's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Resources Connection shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0115% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Resources Connection shares, roughly 12 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 Resources Connection.

Resources Connection share dividends

33%

Dividend payout ratio: 33.4% of net profits

Recently Resources Connection has paid out, on average, around 33.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Resources Connection shareholders could enjoy a 3.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Resources Connection's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.

While Resources Connection's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Resources Connection may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Resources Connection's most recent dividend payout was on 22 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Resources Connection's shares ever split?

Resources Connection's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 March 2005. 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 Resources Connection shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Resources Connection shares which in turn could have impacted Resources Connection's share price.

Resources Connection share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Resources Connection's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.1841 up to $16.71. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
