Is Shenandoah Telecommunications Company under- or over-valued?

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

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's P/E ratio

Shenandoah Telecommunications 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 8x. In other words, Shenandoah Telecommunications Company 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.

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's PEG ratio

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 14.44. 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 Shenandoah Telecommunications 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.

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $59.4 million.

Shorting Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares

There are currently 897,284 Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's "short interest". This figure is 11.8% down from 1.0 million last month.

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

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares traded daily (recently around 236127.36842105). Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's SIR currently stands at 3.8. In other words for every 100,000 Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3800 shares are currently held short.

However Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0187% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares, roughly 19 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 Shenandoah Telecommunications Company.

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company share dividends

5%

Dividend payout ratio: 5.05% of net profits

Recently Shenandoah Telecommunications Company has paid out, on average, around 5.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.

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

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's most recent dividend payout was on 1 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's shares ever split?

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 January 2016. 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 Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Shenandoah Telecommunications Company shares which in turn could have impacted Shenandoah Telecommunications Company's share price.

Shenandoah Telecommunications Company share price volatility
