Is Village Super Market under- or over-valued?

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

Village Super Market's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Village Super Market shares trade at around 16x 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.

Shorting Village Super Market shares

There are currently 586,581 Village Super Market shares held short by investors – that's known as Village Super Market's "short interest". This figure is 3.8% down from 609,695 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Village Super Market shares can be evaluated.

Village Super Market's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Village Super Market's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Village Super Market shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Village Super Market shares traded daily (recently around 38338.62745098). Village Super Market's SIR currently stands at 15.3. In other words for every 100,000 Village Super Market shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15300 shares are currently held short.

However Village Super Market's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Village Super Market shares, or, against the total number of tradable Village Super Market shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Village Super Market's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Village Super Market shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0702% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Village Super Market shares, roughly 70 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Village Super Market.

Village Super Market share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 54.23% of net profits

Recently Village Super Market has paid out, on average, around 54.23% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Village Super Market shareholders could enjoy a 4.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Village Super Market's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

Village Super Market'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.

Village Super Market's most recent dividend payout was on 27 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Village Super Market's shares ever split?

Village Super Market's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 January 2009. 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 Village Super Market shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Village Super Market shares which in turn could have impacted Village Super Market's share price.

Village Super Market share price volatility
