Is Thomson Reuters Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Thomson Reuters Corporation's P/E ratio

Thomson Reuters Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 39x. In other words, Thomson Reuters Corporation shares trade at around 39x 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.

Thomson Reuters Corporation's PEG ratio

Thomson Reuters Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.48. 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 Thomson Reuters Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Thomson Reuters Corporation's EBITDA

Thomson Reuters Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.5 billion.

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

Shorting Thomson Reuters Corporation shares

There are currently 1.7 million Thomson Reuters Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Thomson Reuters Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% down from 1.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Thomson Reuters Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Thomson Reuters Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Thomson Reuters Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Thomson Reuters Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Thomson Reuters Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 542726.70807453). Thomson Reuters Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.22. In other words for every 100,000 Thomson Reuters Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3220 shares are currently held short.

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

Thomson Reuters Corporation share dividends

84%

Dividend payout ratio: 83.51% of net profits

Recently Thomson Reuters Corporation has paid out, on average, around 83.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.86% of the current stock value.

In Thomson Reuters Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.52 per share.

Thomson Reuters Corporation'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.
