Is Sirius XM under- or over-valued?

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

Sirius XM's P/E ratio

Sirius XM's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 103x. In other words, Sirius XM shares trade at around 103x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Sirius XM's PEG ratio

Sirius XM's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.422. 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 Sirius XM's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Sirius XM's EBITDA

Sirius XM's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.5 billion.

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

Shorting Sirius XM shares

There are currently 156.8 million Sirius XM shares held short by investors – that's known as Sirius XM's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% down from 158.0 million last month.

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

Sirius XM's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sirius XM's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sirius XM shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sirius XM shares traded daily (recently around 16.5 million). Sirius XM's SIR currently stands at 9.53. In other words for every 100,000 Sirius XM shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9530 shares are currently held short.

However Sirius XM's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sirius XM shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sirius XM shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sirius XM's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sirius XM shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.1776% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sirius XM shares, roughly 178 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 Sirius XM.

Sirius XM's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Sirius XM.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Sirius XM's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 15.98

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Sirius XM's overall score of 15.98 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 13rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Sirius XM 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.).

Sirius XM's environmental score

Environmental score: 0.82/100

Sirius XM's environmental score of 0.82 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Sirius XM is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Sirius XM's social score

Social score: 11.11/100

Sirius XM's social score of 11.11 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Sirius XM is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Sirius XM's governance score

Governance score: 6.69/100

Sirius XM's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Sirius XM is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Sirius XM's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Sirius XM scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Sirius XM has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Sirius XM share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.17% of net profits

Recently Sirius XM has paid out, on average, around 1.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sirius XM shareholders could enjoy a 0.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sirius XM's case, that would currently equate to about $0.057 per share.

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

Sirius XM's most recent dividend payout was on 29 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sirius XM's shares ever split?

Sirius XM's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 9 October 2011. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sirius XM shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sirius XM shares which in turn could have impacted Sirius XM's share price.

Sirius XM share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sirius XM's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.1403 up to $7.2734. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SIRI.US volatility(beta: 1.05)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Sirius XM's is 1.0535. This would suggest that Sirius XM'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).
