Is Weis Markets under- or over-valued?

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

There are currently 2.2 million Weis Markets shares held short by investors – that's known as Weis Markets's "short interest". This figure is 3% up from 2.2 million last month.

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

Weis Markets's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Weis Markets's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Weis Markets shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Weis Markets shares traded daily (recently around 144718.21730644). Weis Markets's SIR currently stands at 15.37. In other words for every 100,000 Weis Markets shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15370 shares are currently held short.

However Weis Markets's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Weis Markets shares, or, against the total number of tradable Weis Markets shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Weis Markets's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Weis Markets shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1364% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Weis Markets shares, roughly 136 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 Weis Markets.

Weis Markets share dividends

34%

Dividend payout ratio: 33.6% of net profits

Recently Weis Markets has paid out, on average, around 33.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Weis Markets shareholders could enjoy a 2.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Weis Markets's case, that would currently equate to about $1.24 per share.

While Weis Markets's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Weis Markets may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Weis Markets's most recent dividend payout was on 8 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Weis Markets's shares ever split?

Weis Markets's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 May 1987. 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 Weis Markets shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Weis Markets shares which in turn could have impacted Weis Markets's share price.

Weis Markets share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Weis Markets's shares have ranged in value from as little as $43.8993 up to $59.3591. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Weis Markets's is 0.0887. This would suggest that Weis Markets's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
