Is Ternium S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Ternium S-A's P/E ratio

Ternium S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Ternium S-A shares trade at around 4x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Ternium S-A's PEG ratio

Ternium S-A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.03. 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 Ternium S-A'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 Ternium S-A shares

There are currently 1.8 million Ternium S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Ternium S-A's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% up from 1.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ternium S-A shares can be evaluated.

Ternium S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ternium S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ternium S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ternium S-A shares traded daily (recently around 722914.69387755). Ternium S-A's SIR currently stands at 2.45. In other words for every 100,000 Ternium S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2450 shares are currently held short.

However Ternium S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ternium S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ternium S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ternium S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ternium S-A shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0362% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ternium S-A shares, roughly 36 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 Ternium S-A.

Ternium S-A share dividends

17%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.38% of net profits

Recently Ternium S-A has paid out, on average, around 17.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ternium S-A shareholders could enjoy a 4.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ternium S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $2.1 per share.

While Ternium S-A's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ternium S-A is investing more in its future growth.

Ternium S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 13 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Ternium S-A share price volatility
