Is TFI International under- or over-valued?

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

TFI International's P/E ratio

TFI International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, TFI International shares trade at around 18x 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.

Shorting TFI International shares

There are currently 570,934 TFI International shares held short by investors – that's known as TFI International's "short interest". This figure is 55.9% up from 366,325 last month.

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

TFI International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TFI International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TFI International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TFI International shares traded daily (recently around 175133.12883436). TFI International's SIR currently stands at 3.26. In other words for every 100,000 TFI International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3260 shares are currently held short.

However TFI International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TFI International shares, or, against the total number of tradable TFI International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TFI International's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TFI International shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TFI International shares, roughly 0 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 TFI International.

TFI International share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 18.85% of net profits

Recently TFI International has paid out, on average, around 18.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TFI International shareholders could enjoy a 1.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TFI International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.79 per share.

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

TFI International's most recent dividend payout was on 15 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

TFI International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TFI International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.951 up to $52.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TFII.US volatility(beta: 1.58)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 TFI International's is 1.5776. This would suggest that TFI International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
