Is Trex Company under- or over-valued?

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

Trex Company's P/E ratio

Trex Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 69x. In other words, Trex Company shares trade at around 69x 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.

Trex Company's PEG ratio

Trex Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.17. 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 Trex Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Trex Company's EBITDA

Trex Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $257.2 million.

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

Shorting Trex Company shares

There are currently 6.7 million Trex Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Trex Company's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% down from 6.7 million last month.

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

Trex Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Trex Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Trex Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Trex Company shares traded daily (recently around 847374.52229299). Trex Company's SIR currently stands at 7.85. In other words for every 100,000 Trex Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7850 shares are currently held short.

However Trex Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Trex Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Trex Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Trex Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Trex Company shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0644% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Trex Company shares, roughly 64 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 Trex Company.

Trex Company share dividends

We're not expecting Trex Company to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Trex Company's shares ever split?

Trex Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 September 2020. 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 Trex Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Trex Company shares which in turn could have impacted Trex Company's share price.

Trex Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Trex Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $43.585 up to $107.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TREX.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 Trex Company's is 1.4473. This would suggest that Trex Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
