Is Tiffany-and-Co under- or over-valued?

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

Tiffany-and-Co's P/E ratio

Tiffany-and-Co's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 56x. In other words, Tiffany-and-Co shares trade at around 56x 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.

Tiffany-and-Co's PEG ratio

Tiffany-and-Co's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.8797. 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 Tiffany-and-Co's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Tiffany-and-Co's EBITDA

Tiffany-and-Co's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$723.4 million.

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

Shorting Tiffany-and-Co shares

There are currently 5.4 million Tiffany-and-Co shares held short by investors – that's known as Tiffany-and-Co's "short interest". This figure is 18.1% down from 6.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Tiffany-and-Co shares can be evaluated.

Tiffany-and-Co's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tiffany-and-Co's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tiffany-and-Co shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tiffany-and-Co shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Tiffany-and-Co's SIR currently stands at 2.8. In other words for every 100,000 Tiffany-and-Co shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2800 shares are currently held short.

However Tiffany-and-Co's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tiffany-and-Co shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tiffany-and-Co shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tiffany-and-Co's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tiffany-and-Co shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0502% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tiffany-and-Co shares, roughly 50 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 Tiffany-and-Co.

Tiffany-and-Co share dividends

86%

Dividend payout ratio: 85.93% of net profits

Recently Tiffany-and-Co has paid out, on average, around 85.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tiffany-and-Co shareholders could enjoy a 1.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tiffany-and-Co's case, that would currently equate to about $2.32 per share.

Tiffany-and-Co'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.

Tiffany-and-Co's most recent dividend payout was on 22 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Tiffany-and-Co's shares ever split?

Tiffany-and-Co's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 July 2000. 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 Tiffany-and-Co shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tiffany-and-Co shares which in turn could have impacted Tiffany-and-Co's share price.

Tiffany-and-Co share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tiffany-and-Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $101.8839 up to $131.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
