Is Wabash National Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Wabash National Corporation's P/E ratio

Wabash National 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 31x. In other words, Wabash National Corporation shares trade at around 31x 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.

Wabash National Corporation's PEG ratio

Wabash National Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1. 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 Wabash National 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.

Wabash National Corporation's EBITDA

Wabash National Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $99.4 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Wabash National Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Wabash National Corporation shares

There are currently 4.0 million Wabash National Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Wabash National Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% down from 4.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Wabash National Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Wabash National Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Wabash National Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wabash National Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wabash National Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 505981.88679245). Wabash National Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.95. In other words for every 100,000 Wabash National Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7950 shares are currently held short.

However Wabash National Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wabash National Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wabash National Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wabash National Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wabash National Corporation shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0809% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wabash National Corporation shares, roughly 81 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Wabash National Corporation.

Wabash National Corporation share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.28% of net profits

Recently Wabash National Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wabash National Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wabash National Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

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

Wabash National Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 28 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Wabash National Corporation's shares ever split?

Wabash National Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 28 July 1994. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Wabash National Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Wabash National Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Wabash National Corporation's share price.

Wabash National Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Wabash National Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.6421 up to $20.3479. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WNC.US volatility(beta: 1.85)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Wabash National Corporation's is 1.8487. This would suggest that Wabash National Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
