Is Sally Beauty under- or over-valued?

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

Sally Beauty's P/E ratio

Sally Beauty's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Sally Beauty shares trade at around 8x 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.

Sally Beauty's PEG ratio

Sally Beauty's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.63. 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 Sally Beauty's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Sally Beauty's EBITDA

Sally Beauty's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $543.1 million.

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

Shorting Sally Beauty shares

There are currently 9.8 million Sally Beauty shares held short by investors – that's known as Sally Beauty's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 9.6 million last month.

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

Sally Beauty's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sally Beauty's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sally Beauty shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sally Beauty shares traded daily (recently around 937388.35877863). Sally Beauty's SIR currently stands at 10.48. In other words for every 100,000 Sally Beauty shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10480 shares are currently held short.

However Sally Beauty's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sally Beauty shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sally Beauty shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sally Beauty's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sally Beauty shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sally Beauty shares, roughly 102 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Sally Beauty.

Sally Beauty share dividends

We're not expecting Sally Beauty to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Sally Beauty's shares ever split?

Sally Beauty's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 22 February 2004. 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 Sally Beauty shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sally Beauty shares which in turn could have impacted Sally Beauty's share price.

Sally Beauty share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sally Beauty's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.275 up to $25.62. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SBH.US volatility(beta: 1.61)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 Sally Beauty's is 1.6101. This would suggest that Sally Beauty's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
