Is SunCoke Energy 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.

Shorting SunCoke Energy shares

There are currently 3.2 million SunCoke Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as SunCoke Energy's "short interest". This figure is 27.1% up from 2.5 million last month.

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

SunCoke Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SunCoke Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SunCoke Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SunCoke Energy shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). SunCoke Energy's SIR currently stands at 2.12. In other words for every 100,000 SunCoke Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2120 shares are currently held short.

However SunCoke Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SunCoke Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable SunCoke Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SunCoke Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SunCoke Energy shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.046% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SunCoke Energy shares, roughly 46 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 SunCoke Energy.

SunCoke Energy share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 4.8% of net profits

Recently SunCoke Energy has paid out, on average, around 4.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SunCoke Energy shareholders could enjoy a 3.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SunCoke Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.

While SunCoke Energy's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that SunCoke Energy is investing more in its future growth.

SunCoke Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 28 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

SunCoke Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SunCoke Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.1936 up to $7.7. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SXC.US volatility(beta: 1.17)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 SunCoke Energy's is 1.1666. This would suggest that SunCoke Energy's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
