Is Rogers Communications under- or over-valued?

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

Rogers Communications's P/E ratio

Rogers Communications's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Rogers Communications shares trade at around 19x 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.

Rogers Communications's PEG ratio

Rogers Communications's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.79. 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 Rogers Communications'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 Rogers Communications shares

There are currently 2.2 million Rogers Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Rogers Communications's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% down from 2.3 million last month.

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

Rogers Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Rogers Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rogers Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rogers Communications shares traded daily (recently around 373249.83333333). Rogers Communications's SIR currently stands at 6. In other words for every 100,000 Rogers Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6000 shares are currently held short.

However Rogers Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rogers Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rogers Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rogers Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rogers Communications shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0064% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rogers Communications shares, roughly 6 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 Rogers Communications.

Rogers Communications share dividends

57%

Dividend payout ratio: 56.58% of net profits

Recently Rogers Communications has paid out, on average, around 56.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Rogers Communications shareholders could enjoy a 3.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Rogers Communications's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.

Rogers Communications'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.

Rogers Communications's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Rogers Communications's shares ever split?

Rogers Communications's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 January 2007. 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 Rogers Communications shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rogers Communications shares which in turn could have impacted Rogers Communications's share price.

Rogers Communications share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Rogers Communications's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.4756 up to $53.4726. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
