Is Valmont Industries under- or over-valued?

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

Valmont Industries's P/E ratio

Valmont Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Valmont Industries shares trade at around 24x 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.

Valmont Industries's PEG ratio

Valmont Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.31. 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 Valmont Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Valmont Industries's EBITDA

Shorting Valmont Industries shares

There are currently 218,715 Valmont Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Valmont Industries's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% down from 221,240 last month.

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

Valmont Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Valmont Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Valmont Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Valmont Industries shares traded daily (recently around 97206.666666667). Valmont Industries's SIR currently stands at 2.25. In other words for every 100,000 Valmont Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2250 shares are currently held short.

However Valmont Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Valmont Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Valmont Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Valmont Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Valmont Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0105% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Valmont Industries shares, roughly 11 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 Valmont Industries.

Valmont Industries share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 15.74% of net profits

Recently Valmont Industries has paid out, on average, around 15.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Valmont Industries shareholders could enjoy a 0.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Valmont Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $1.95 per share.

While Valmont Industries's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Valmont Industries is investing more in its future growth.

Valmont Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Valmont Industries's shares ever split?

Valmont Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 June 1997. 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 Valmont Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Valmont Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Valmont Industries's share price.

Valmont Industries share price volatility

This would suggest that Valmont Industries'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).
