Is SS-and-C Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

SS-and-C Technologies's P/E ratio

SS-and-C Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, SS-and-C Technologies shares trade at around 30x 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.

SS-and-C Technologies's PEG ratio

SS-and-C Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5016. 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 SS-and-C Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting SS-and-C Technologies shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SS-and-C Technologies shares can be evaluated.

SS-and-C Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SS-and-C Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SS-and-C Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SS-and-C Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 846856.41025641). SS-and-C Technologies's SIR currently stands at 1.95. In other words for every 100,000 SS-and-C Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1950 shares are currently held short.

However SS-and-C Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SS-and-C Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable SS-and-C Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SS-and-C Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SS-and-C Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0074% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SS-and-C Technologies shares, roughly 7 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 SS-and-C Technologies.

SS-and-C Technologies share dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.6% of net profits

Recently SS-and-C Technologies has paid out, on average, around 17.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SS-and-C Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SS-and-C Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.565 per share.

While SS-and-C Technologies's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that SS-and-C Technologies is investing more in its future growth.

SS-and-C Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have SS-and-C Technologies's shares ever split?

SS-and-C Technologies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 June 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 SS-and-C Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SS-and-C Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted SS-and-C Technologies's share price.

SS-and-C Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SS-and-C Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $56.9408 up to $76.05. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SSNC.US volatility(beta: 1.57)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 SS-and-C Technologies's is 1.5686. This would suggest that SS-and-C Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
