Is Rush Enterprises under- or over-valued?

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

Rush Enterprises's P/E ratio

Rush Enterprises's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Rush Enterprises shares trade at around 15x 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.

Rush Enterprises's PEG ratio

Rush Enterprises's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.1615. 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 Rush Enterprises's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Rush Enterprises's EBITDA

Rush Enterprises's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $395.5 million.

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

Shorting Rush Enterprises shares

There are currently 536,140 Rush Enterprises shares held short by investors – that's known as Rush Enterprises's "short interest". This figure is 40.5% up from 381,699 last month.

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

Rush Enterprises's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Rush Enterprises's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rush Enterprises shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rush Enterprises shares traded daily (recently around 294582.41758242). Rush Enterprises's SIR currently stands at 1.82. In other words for every 100,000 Rush Enterprises shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1820 shares are currently held short.

However Rush Enterprises's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rush Enterprises shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rush Enterprises shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rush Enterprises's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rush Enterprises shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0101% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rush Enterprises shares, roughly 10 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 Rush Enterprises.

Rush Enterprises share dividends

22%

Dividend payout ratio: 22.19% of net profits

Recently Rush Enterprises has paid out, on average, around 22.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Rush Enterprises shareholders could enjoy a 1.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Rush Enterprises's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While Rush Enterprises's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Rush Enterprises is investing more in its future growth.

Rush Enterprises's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Rush Enterprises's shares ever split?

Rush Enterprises's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 12 October 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 Rush Enterprises shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rush Enterprises shares which in turn could have impacted Rush Enterprises's share price.

Rush Enterprises share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Rush Enterprises's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.1568 up to $51.98. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RUSHA.US volatility(beta: 1.26)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Rush Enterprises's is 1.2606. This would suggest that Rush Enterprises's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
