Is Texas Roadhouse under- or over-valued?

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

Texas Roadhouse's P/E ratio

Texas Roadhouse's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 78x. In other words, Texas Roadhouse shares trade at around 78x 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.

Texas Roadhouse's PEG ratio

Texas Roadhouse's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.0265. 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 Texas Roadhouse's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Texas Roadhouse's EBITDA

Texas Roadhouse's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$183.1 million.

Shorting Texas Roadhouse shares

There are currently 5.4 million Texas Roadhouse shares held short by investors – that's known as Texas Roadhouse's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% down from 5.5 million last month.

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

Texas Roadhouse's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Texas Roadhouse's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Texas Roadhouse shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Texas Roadhouse shares traded daily (recently around 800518.47988077). Texas Roadhouse's SIR currently stands at 6.71. In other words for every 100,000 Texas Roadhouse shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6710 shares are currently held short.

However Texas Roadhouse's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Texas Roadhouse shares, or, against the total number of tradable Texas Roadhouse shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Texas Roadhouse's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Texas Roadhouse shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0963% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Texas Roadhouse shares, roughly 96 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 Texas Roadhouse.

Texas Roadhouse share dividends

75%

Dividend payout ratio: 75% of net profits

Recently Texas Roadhouse has paid out, on average, around 75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Texas Roadhouse shareholders could enjoy a 3.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Texas Roadhouse's case, that would currently equate to about $1.44 per share.

Texas Roadhouse'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.

Texas Roadhouse's most recent dividend payout was on 27 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Texas Roadhouse's shares ever split?

Texas Roadhouse's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 September 2005. 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 Texas Roadhouse shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Texas Roadhouse shares which in turn could have impacted Texas Roadhouse's share price.

Texas Roadhouse share price volatility
