Is Shoe Carnival under- or over-valued?
Valuing Shoe Carnival stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Shoe Carnival's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Shoe Carnival's P/E ratio
Shoe Carnival's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Shoe Carnival shares trade at around 13x 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.
Shoe Carnival's PEG ratio
Shoe Carnival's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.95. 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 Shoe Carnival's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Shoe Carnival's EBITDA
Shoe Carnival's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $123.7 million.

Shorting Shoe Carnival shares
There are currently 1.3 million Shoe Carnival shares held short by investors – that's known as Shoe Carnival's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% up from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Shoe Carnival shares can be evaluated.
Shoe Carnival's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Shoe Carnival's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Shoe Carnival shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Shoe Carnival shares traded daily (recently around 212023.05246423). Shoe Carnival's SIR currently stands at 6.29. In other words for every 100,000 Shoe Carnival shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6290 shares are currently held short.
However Shoe Carnival's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shoe Carnival shares, or, against the total number of tradable Shoe Carnival shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shoe Carnival's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Shoe Carnival shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1511% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Shoe Carnival shares, roughly 151 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Shoe Carnival.

Shoe Carnival share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4.11% of net profits
Recently Shoe Carnival has paid out, on average, around 4.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Shoe Carnival shareholders could enjoy a 0.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Shoe Carnival's case, that would currently equate to about $0.205 per share.
While Shoe Carnival's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Shoe Carnival is investing more in its future growth.
Shoe Carnival's most recent dividend payout was on 18 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Shoe Carnival's shares ever split?
Shoe Carnival's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 July 2021. 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 Shoe Carnival shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Shoe Carnival shares which in turn could have impacted Shoe Carnival's share price.
Shoe Carnival share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Shoe Carnival's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.4402 up to $39.8258. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Shoe Carnival's is 1.4467. This would suggest that Shoe Carnival's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
