Is Trinseo S-A under- or over-valued?

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Trinseo S-A shares can be evaluated.

Trinseo S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Trinseo S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Trinseo S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Trinseo S-A shares traded daily (recently around 452033.19238901). Trinseo S-A's SIR currently stands at 4.73. In other words for every 100,000 Trinseo S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4730 shares are currently held short.

However Trinseo S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Trinseo S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Trinseo S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Trinseo S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Trinseo S-A shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0889% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Trinseo S-A shares, roughly 89 shares are currently held short).

Recently Trinseo S-A has paid out, on average, around 241.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Trinseo S-A shareholders could enjoy a 0.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Trinseo S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

Trinseo S-A'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.
