Is RLI under- or over-valued?
Valuing RLI stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of RLI's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
RLI's P/E ratio
RLI's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, RLI shares trade at around 18x 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.
RLI's PEG ratio
RLI's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.82. 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 RLI's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
RLI's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $330.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a RLI's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting RLI shares
There are currently 1.0 million RLI shares held short by investors – that's known as RLI's "short interest". This figure is 6.2% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting RLI shares can be evaluated.
RLI's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
RLI's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RLI shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RLI shares traded daily (recently around 131029.83354673). RLI's SIR currently stands at 7.81. In other words for every 100,000 RLI shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7810 shares are currently held short.
However RLI's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RLI shares, or, against the total number of tradable RLI shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RLI's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RLI shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0271% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RLI shares, roughly 27 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 RLI.

RLI share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 62.86% of net profits
Recently RLI has paid out, on average, around 62.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), RLI shareholders could enjoy a 0.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RLI's case, that would currently equate to about $0.97 per share.
RLI'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.
RLI's most recent dividend payout was on 17 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have RLI's shares ever split?
RLI's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 January 2014. 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 RLI shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for RLI shares which in turn could have impacted RLI's share price.
RLI share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, RLI's shares have ranged in value from as little as $79.8364 up to $117.5577. 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 RLI's is 0.3417. This would suggest that RLI's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
