Is The Buckle under- or over-valued?

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

The Buckle's P/E ratio

The Buckle's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, The Buckle shares trade at around 10x 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.

The Buckle's PEG ratio

The Buckle's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 48.3. 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 The Buckle's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

The Buckle's EBITDA

The Buckle's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $280.2 million.

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

Shorting The Buckle shares

There are currently 5.7 million The Buckle shares held short by investors – that's known as The Buckle's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% down from 5.8 million last month.

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

The Buckle's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Buckle's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Buckle shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Buckle shares traded daily (recently around 621148.26086957). The Buckle's SIR currently stands at 9.2. In other words for every 100,000 The Buckle shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9200 shares are currently held short.

However The Buckle's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Buckle shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Buckle shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Buckle's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Buckle shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1981% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Buckle shares, roughly 198 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 The Buckle.

The Buckle share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 77.8% of net profits

Recently The Buckle has paid out, on average, around 77.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Buckle shareholders could enjoy a 3.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Buckle's case, that would currently equate to about $0.93 per share.

The Buckle'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.

The Buckle's most recent dividend payout was on 28 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have The Buckle's shares ever split?

The Buckle's shares were split on a 10241:1000 basis on 12 January 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10241 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The Buckle shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Buckle shares which in turn could have impacted The Buckle's share price.

The Buckle share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, The Buckle's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.575 up to $50.4272. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BKE.US volatility(beta: 1.11)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 The Buckle's is 1.111. This would suggest that The Buckle'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).
