Is Steelcase under- or over-valued?

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

Steelcase's P/E ratio

Steelcase's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 44x. In other words, Steelcase shares trade at around 44x 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.

Steelcase's PEG ratio

Steelcase's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.35. 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 Steelcase's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Steelcase's EBITDA

Steelcase's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $168.4 million.

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

Shorting Steelcase shares

There are currently 1.4 million Steelcase shares held short by investors – that's known as Steelcase's "short interest". This figure is 7.2% up from 1.3 million last month.

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

Steelcase's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Steelcase's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Steelcase shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Steelcase shares traded daily (recently around 325673.14148681). Steelcase's SIR currently stands at 4.17. In other words for every 100,000 Steelcase shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4170 shares are currently held short.

However Steelcase's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Steelcase shares, or, against the total number of tradable Steelcase shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Steelcase's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Steelcase shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0162% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Steelcase shares, roughly 16 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 Steelcase.

Steelcase share dividends

99%

Dividend payout ratio: 98.89% of net profits

Recently Steelcase has paid out, on average, around 98.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Steelcase shareholders could enjoy a 4.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Steelcase's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

Steelcase's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Steelcase's most recent dividend payout was on 19 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Steelcase's shares ever split?

Steelcase's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 10 August 2006. So if you had owned 5 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 Steelcase shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Steelcase shares which in turn could have impacted Steelcase's share price.

Steelcase share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Steelcase's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.2387 up to $16.5682. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SCS.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 Steelcase's is 1.4198. This would suggest that Steelcase's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
