Is V-FCorporation under- or over-valued?

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

V-FCorporation's P/E ratio

V-FCorporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 81x. In other words, V-FCorporation shares trade at around 81x 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.

V-FCorporation's PEG ratio

V-FCorporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9002. 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 V-FCorporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

V-FCorporation's EBITDA

V-FCorporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $968.4 million.

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

Shorting V-FCorporation shares

There are currently 6.5 million V-FCorporation shares held short by investors – that's known as V-FCorporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.8% up from 5.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting V-FCorporation shares can be evaluated.

V-FCorporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

V-FCorporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of V-FCorporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of V-FCorporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). V-FCorporation's SIR currently stands at 3.04. In other words for every 100,000 V-FCorporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3040 shares are currently held short.

However V-FCorporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of V-FCorporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable V-FCorporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case V-FCorporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 V-FCorporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0178% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable V-FCorporation shares, roughly 18 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 V-FCorporation.

V-FCorporation share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.08% of net profits

Recently V-FCorporation has paid out, on average, around 1.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), V-FCorporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In V-FCorporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.94 per share.

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

V-FCorporation's most recent dividend payout was on 20 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have V-FCorporation's shares ever split?

V-FCorporation's shares were split on a 1062:1000 basis on 22 May 2019. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1062 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your V-FCorporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for V-FCorporation shares which in turn could have impacted V-FCorporation's share price.

V-FCorporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, V-FCorporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $56.1827 up to $90.2323. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
