Is Victory Capital under- or over-valued?

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

Victory Capital's P/E ratio

Victory Capital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Victory Capital shares trade at around 8x 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.

Victory Capital's EBITDA

Victory Capital's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$359.5 million.

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

Shorting Victory Capital shares

There are currently 1.3 million Victory Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Victory Capital's "short interest". This figure is 21.4% down from 1.6 million last month.

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

Victory Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Victory Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Victory Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Victory Capital shares traded daily (recently around 59614.733840304). Victory Capital's SIR currently stands at 21.04. In other words for every 100,000 Victory Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 21040 shares are currently held short.

However Victory Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Victory Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Victory Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Victory Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Victory Capital shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0903% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Victory Capital shares, roughly 90 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Victory Capital.

Victory Capital share dividends

6%

Dividend payout ratio: 6.05% of net profits

Recently Victory Capital has paid out, on average, around 6.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Victory Capital shareholders could enjoy a 1.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Victory Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.

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

Victory Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 28 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Victory Capital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Victory Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.1533 up to $24.6959. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VCTR.US volatility(beta: 0.99)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Victory Capital's is 0.9895. This would suggest that Victory Capital's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
