Is Veritiv Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Veritiv Corporation's P/E ratio

Veritiv 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 21x. In other words, Veritiv Corporation shares trade at around 21x 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.

Veritiv Corporation's PEG ratio

Veritiv Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.97. 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 Veritiv 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.

Veritiv Corporation's EBITDA

Veritiv Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $141.6 million.

In this case Veritiv Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Veritiv Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0419% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Veritiv Corporation shares, roughly 42 shares are currently held short).
