Is Starbucks Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Starbucks Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Starbucks Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Starbucks Corporation's P/E ratio
Starbucks Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 51x. In other words, Starbucks Corporation shares trade at around 51x 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.
Starbucks Corporation's PEG ratio
Starbucks Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3681. 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 Starbucks 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.
Starbucks Corporation's EBITDA
Starbucks Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $5.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Starbucks Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Starbucks Corporation shares
There are currently 12.4 million Starbucks Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Starbucks Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.4% up from 12.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Starbucks Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Starbucks Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Starbucks Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Starbucks Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Starbucks Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 5.4 million). Starbucks Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.29. In other words for every 100,000 Starbucks Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2290 shares are currently held short.
However Starbucks Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Starbucks Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Starbucks Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Starbucks Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Starbucks Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0102% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Starbucks Corporation shares, roughly 10 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 Starbucks Corporation.

Starbucks Corporation share dividends

Recently Starbucks Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Starbucks Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Starbucks Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.
While Starbucks Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Starbucks Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Starbucks Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 26 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Starbucks Corporation's shares ever split?
Starbucks Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 8 April 2015. 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 Starbucks Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Starbucks Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Starbucks Corporation's share price.
Starbucks Corporation share price volatility
