Is Wayside Technology Group under- or over-valued?

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

Wayside Technology Group's P/E ratio

Wayside Technology Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Wayside Technology Group shares trade at around 24x 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.

Wayside Technology Group's EBITDA

Wayside Technology Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $8.3 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Wayside Technology Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Wayside Technology Group shares

There are currently 18,445 Wayside Technology Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Wayside Technology Group's "short interest". This figure is 30.6% up from 14,119 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Wayside Technology Group shares can be evaluated.

Wayside Technology Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Wayside Technology Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wayside Technology Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wayside Technology Group shares traded daily (recently around 9362.9441624365). Wayside Technology Group's SIR currently stands at 1.97. In other words for every 100,000 Wayside Technology Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1970 shares are currently held short.

However Wayside Technology Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wayside Technology Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wayside Technology Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wayside Technology Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wayside Technology Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0055% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wayside Technology Group shares, roughly 6 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 Wayside Technology Group.

Wayside Technology Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 53.68% of net profits

Recently Wayside Technology Group has paid out, on average, around 53.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.42% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wayside Technology Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.42% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wayside Technology Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

Wayside Technology Group'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.

Wayside Technology Group's most recent dividend payout was on 20 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Wayside Technology Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Wayside Technology Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.4655 up to $30.05. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WSTG.US volatility(beta: 0.81)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 Wayside Technology Group's is 0.8134. This would suggest that Wayside Technology Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
