Is REV Group under- or over-valued?

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

REV Group's PEG ratio

REV Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.95. 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 REV Group'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 REV Group shares

There are currently 1.2 million REV Group shares held short by investors – that's known as REV Group's "short interest". This figure is 3% down from 1.3 million last month.

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

REV Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

REV Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of REV Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of REV Group shares traded daily (recently around 232524.58100559). REV Group's SIR currently stands at 5.37. In other words for every 100,000 REV Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5370 shares are currently held short.

However REV Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of REV Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable REV Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case REV Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 REV Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0454% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable REV Group shares, roughly 45 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against REV Group.

REV Group share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 500% of net profits

Recently REV Group has paid out, on average, around 500% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), REV Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In REV Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

REV Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

REV Group's most recent dividend payout was on 29 May 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

REV Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, REV Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.5816 up to $13.4885. 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 REV Group's is 2.7543. This would suggest that REV Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
