Is SEI Investments Company under- or over-valued?

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

SEI Investments Company's P/E ratio

SEI Investments Company'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, SEI Investments Company 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.

SEI Investments Company's PEG ratio

SEI Investments Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3833. 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 SEI Investments Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

SEI Investments Company's EBITDA

SEI Investments Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $542.2 million.

Shorting SEI Investments Company shares

There are currently 2.3 million SEI Investments Company shares held short by investors – that's known as SEI Investments Company's "short interest". This figure is 40.7% up from 1.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SEI Investments Company shares can be evaluated.

SEI Investments Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SEI Investments Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SEI Investments Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SEI Investments Company shares traded daily (recently around 530273.67205543). SEI Investments Company's SIR currently stands at 4.33. In other words for every 100,000 SEI Investments Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4330 shares are currently held short.

However SEI Investments Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SEI Investments Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable SEI Investments Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SEI Investments Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SEI Investments Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0196% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SEI Investments Company shares, roughly 20 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 SEI Investments Company.

SEI Investments Company share dividends

22%

Dividend payout ratio: 21.57% of net profits

Recently SEI Investments Company has paid out, on average, around 21.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SEI Investments Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SEI Investments Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.74 per share.

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

Have SEI Investments Company's shares ever split?

SEI Investments Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 June 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 SEI Investments Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SEI Investments Company shares which in turn could have impacted SEI Investments Company's share price.

SEI Investments Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SEI Investments Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $48.0962 up to $64.3963. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SEIC.US volatility(beta: 1.08)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

This would suggest that SEI Investments Company's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
