Is Royal Gold under- or over-valued?
Valuing Royal Gold stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Royal Gold's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Royal Gold's P/E ratio
Royal Gold's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Royal Gold shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Royal Gold's PEG ratio
Royal Gold's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.41. 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 Royal Gold's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Royal Gold's EBITDA
Royal Gold's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $444.6 million.

Shorting Royal Gold shares
There are currently 1.7 million Royal Gold shares held short by investors – that's known as Royal Gold's "short interest". This figure is 11.7% down from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Royal Gold shares can be evaluated.
Royal Gold's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Royal Gold's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Royal Gold shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Royal Gold shares traded daily (recently around 488039.49579832). Royal Gold's SIR currently stands at 3.57. In other words for every 100,000 Royal Gold shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3570 shares are currently held short.
However Royal Gold's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Royal Gold shares, or, against the total number of tradable Royal Gold shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Royal Gold's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Royal Gold shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0267% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Royal Gold shares, roughly 27 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 Royal Gold.

Royal Gold share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.94% of net profits
Recently Royal Gold has paid out, on average, around 37.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Royal Gold shareholders could enjoy a 1.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Royal Gold's case, that would currently equate to about $1.18 per share.
While Royal Gold's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Royal Gold may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Royal Gold's most recent dividend payout was on 15 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
