Is Ryder System under- or over-valued?

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

Ryder System's P/E ratio

Ryder System's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 108x. In other words, Ryder System shares trade at around 108x 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.

Ryder System's PEG ratio

Ryder System's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.22. 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 Ryder System's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ryder System's EBITDA

Ryder System's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.4 billion.

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

Shorting Ryder System shares

There are currently 1.2 million Ryder System shares held short by investors – that's known as Ryder System's "short interest". This figure is 4.8% down from 1.2 million last month.

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

Ryder System's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ryder System's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ryder System shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ryder System shares traded daily (recently around 610132.4742268). Ryder System's SIR currently stands at 1.94. In other words for every 100,000 Ryder System shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1940 shares are currently held short.

However Ryder System's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ryder System shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ryder System shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ryder System's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ryder System shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0222% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ryder System shares, roughly 22 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 Ryder System.

Ryder System share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 72.2% of net profits

Recently Ryder System has paid out, on average, around 72.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ryder System shareholders could enjoy a 3.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ryder System's case, that would currently equate to about $2.24 per share.

Ryder System'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.

Ryder System's most recent dividend payout was on 16 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ryder System's shares ever split?

Ryder System's shares were split on 14 December 1993.

Ryder System share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ryder System's shares have ranged in value from as little as $34.0818 up to $89.0272. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

R.US volatility(beta: 1.98)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 Ryder System's is 1.9799. This would suggest that Ryder System's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
