Is Rollins under- or over-valued?

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

Rollins's P/E ratio

Rollins's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 59x. In other words, Rollins shares trade at around 59x 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.

Rollins's PEG ratio

Rollins's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.22. 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 Rollins's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Rollins's EBITDA

Rollins's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $489.3 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Rollins's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Rollins shares

There are currently 11.9 million Rollins shares held short by investors – that's known as Rollins's "short interest". This figure is 6.1% down from 12.7 million last month.

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

Rollins's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Rollins's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rollins shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rollins shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Rollins's SIR currently stands at 7.65. In other words for every 100,000 Rollins shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7650 shares are currently held short.

However Rollins's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rollins shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rollins shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rollins's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rollins shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0527% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rollins shares, roughly 53 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 Rollins.

Rollins share dividends

45%

Dividend payout ratio: 44.67% of net profits

Recently Rollins has paid out, on average, around 44.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Rollins shareholders could enjoy a 0.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Rollins's case, that would currently equate to about $0.239 per share.

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

Rollins's most recent dividend payout was on 9 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Rollins's shares ever split?

Rollins's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 10 December 2020. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Rollins shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rollins shares which in turn could have impacted Rollins's share price.

Rollins share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Rollins's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.3401 up to $42.8148. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ROL.US volatility(beta: 0.5)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Rollins's is 0.5037. This would suggest that Rollins's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
