Is Sealed Air Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Sealed Air Corporation's P/E ratio

Sealed Air Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Sealed Air Corporation shares trade at around 18x 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.

Sealed Air Corporation's PEG ratio

Sealed Air Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.8056. 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 Sealed Air Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Sealed Air Corporation's EBITDA

Sealed Air Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $998.9 million.

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

Shorting Sealed Air Corporation shares

There are currently 1.9 million Sealed Air Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Sealed Air Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 12.8% down from 2.2 million last month.

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

Sealed Air Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sealed Air Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sealed Air Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sealed Air Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 792457.14285714). Sealed Air Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.45. In other words for every 100,000 Sealed Air Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2450 shares are currently held short.

However Sealed Air Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sealed Air Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sealed Air Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sealed Air Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sealed Air Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.013% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sealed Air Corporation shares, roughly 13 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 Sealed Air Corporation.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Sealed Air Corporation is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Sealed Air Corporation share dividends

22%

Dividend payout ratio: 21.95% of net profits

Recently Sealed Air Corporation has paid out, on average, around 21.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sealed Air Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sealed Air Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

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

Sealed Air Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 16 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sealed Air Corporation's shares ever split?

Sealed Air Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 March 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sealed Air Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sealed Air Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Sealed Air Corporation's share price.

Sealed Air Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sealed Air Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.7697 up to $61.8384. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SEE.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 Sealed Air Corporation's is 1.2713. This would suggest that Sealed Air Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
