Is Standex International Corporation under- or over-valued?

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Standex International Corporation'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 Standex International Corporation shares

There are currently 98,492 Standex International Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Standex International Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 41.2% down from 167,448 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Standex International Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Standex International Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Standex International Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Standex International Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Standex International Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 71371.014492754). Standex International Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.38. In other words for every 100,000 Standex International Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1380 shares are currently held short.

However Standex International Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Standex International Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Standex International Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Standex International Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Standex International Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0123% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Standex International Corporation shares, roughly 12 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 Standex International Corporation.

Standex International Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 25.41% of net profits

Recently Standex International Corporation has paid out, on average, around 25.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Standex International Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Standex International Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.

While Standex International Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Standex International Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Standex International Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 24 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Standex International Corporation's shares ever split?

Standex International Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 May 1993. 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 Standex International Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Standex International Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Standex International Corporation's share price.

Standex International Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Standex International Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.6972 up to $108.17. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SXI.US volatility(beta: 1.31)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Standex International Corporation's is 1.3078. This would suggest that Standex International Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
