Is Stantec under- or over-valued?
Valuing Stantec stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Stantec's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Stantec's P/E ratio
Stantec's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, Stantec shares trade at around 36x 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.
Stantec's PEG ratio
Stantec's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.63. 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 Stantec's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Stantec's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $435 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Stantec's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Stantec shares
There are currently 331,238 Stantec shares held short by investors – that's known as Stantec's "short interest". This figure is 13% down from 380,855 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Stantec shares can be evaluated.
Stantec's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Stantec's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Stantec shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Stantec shares traded daily (recently around 52081.44654088). Stantec's SIR currently stands at 6.36. In other words for every 100,000 Stantec shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6360 shares are currently held short.
However Stantec's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Stantec shares, or, against the total number of tradable Stantec shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Stantec's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Stantec shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.003% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Stantec shares, roughly 3 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 Stantec.

Stantec share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 36.88% of net profits
Recently Stantec has paid out, on average, around 36.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Stantec shareholders could enjoy a 1.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Stantec's case, that would currently equate to about $0.63 per share.
While Stantec's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Stantec may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Stantec's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Stantec's shares ever split?
Stantec's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 November 2014. 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 Stantec shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stantec shares which in turn could have impacted Stantec's share price.
Stantec share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Stantec's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.826 up to $47.4171. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
