Is Winnebago Industries under- or over-valued?

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

Winnebago Industries's P/E ratio

Winnebago Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Winnebago Industries shares trade at around 17x 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.

Winnebago Industries's PEG ratio

Winnebago Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5807. 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 Winnebago Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Winnebago Industries's EBITDA

Shorting Winnebago Industries shares

There are currently 2.5 million Winnebago Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Winnebago Industries's "short interest". This figure is 4.5% down from 2.6 million last month.

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

Winnebago Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Winnebago Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Winnebago Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Winnebago Industries shares traded daily (recently around 757342.59818731). Winnebago Industries's SIR currently stands at 3.31. In other words for every 100,000 Winnebago Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3310 shares are currently held short.

However Winnebago Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Winnebago Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Winnebago Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Winnebago Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Winnebago Industries shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0925% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Winnebago Industries shares, roughly 93 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 Winnebago Industries.

Winnebago Industries share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 9.4% of net profits

Recently Winnebago Industries has paid out, on average, around 9.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Winnebago Industries shareholders could enjoy a 0.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Winnebago Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.46 per share.

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

Winnebago Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 27 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Winnebago Industries's shares ever split?

Winnebago Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 March 2004. 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 Winnebago Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Winnebago Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Winnebago Industries's share price.

Winnebago Industries share price volatility
