Is WisdomTree Investments under- or over-valued?

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

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.

WisdomTree Investments's PEG ratio

WisdomTree Investments'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 WisdomTree Investments's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

WisdomTree Investments's EBITDA

Shorting WisdomTree Investments shares

There are currently 8.8 million WisdomTree Investments shares held short by investors – that's known as WisdomTree Investments's "short interest". This figure is 2% down from 9.0 million last month.

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

WisdomTree Investments's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

WisdomTree Investments's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WisdomTree Investments shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WisdomTree Investments shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). WisdomTree Investments's SIR currently stands at 7.97. In other words for every 100,000 WisdomTree Investments shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7970 shares are currently held short.

However WisdomTree Investments's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WisdomTree Investments shares, or, against the total number of tradable WisdomTree Investments shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WisdomTree Investments's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WisdomTree Investments shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0868% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WisdomTree Investments shares, roughly 87 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 WisdomTree Investments.

WisdomTree Investments share dividends

48%

Dividend payout ratio: 48% of net profits

Recently WisdomTree Investments has paid out, on average, around 48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WisdomTree Investments shareholders could enjoy a 1.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WisdomTree Investments's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.

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

WisdomTree Investments's most recent dividend payout was on 23 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

WisdomTree Investments share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, WisdomTree Investments's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.4123 up to $6.9267. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WETF.US volatility(beta: 1.82)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 WisdomTree Investments's is 1.8152. This would suggest that WisdomTree Investments's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
