Is World Wrestling Entertainment under- or over-valued?

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

World Wrestling Entertainment's P/E ratio

World Wrestling Entertainment's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, World Wrestling Entertainment shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

World Wrestling Entertainment's PEG ratio

World Wrestling Entertainment's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.22. 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 World Wrestling Entertainment's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

World Wrestling Entertainment's EBITDA

World Wrestling Entertainment's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $293.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a World Wrestling Entertainment's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting World Wrestling Entertainment shares

There are currently 6.7 million World Wrestling Entertainment shares held short by investors – that's known as World Wrestling Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 18.5% down from 8.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting World Wrestling Entertainment shares can be evaluated.

World Wrestling Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

World Wrestling Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of World Wrestling Entertainment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of World Wrestling Entertainment shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). World Wrestling Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 5.89. In other words for every 100,000 World Wrestling Entertainment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5890 shares are currently held short.

However World Wrestling Entertainment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of World Wrestling Entertainment shares, or, against the total number of tradable World Wrestling Entertainment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case World Wrestling Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 World Wrestling Entertainment shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1495% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable World Wrestling Entertainment shares, roughly 150 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 World Wrestling Entertainment.

World Wrestling Entertainment share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 27.27% of net profits

Recently World Wrestling Entertainment has paid out, on average, around 27.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), World Wrestling Entertainment shareholders could enjoy a 0.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In World Wrestling Entertainment's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

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

World Wrestling Entertainment's most recent dividend payout was on 24 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

World Wrestling Entertainment share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, World Wrestling Entertainment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.2034 up to $65.1248. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WWE.US volatility(beta: 1.51)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 World Wrestling Entertainment's is 1.5065. This would suggest that World Wrestling Entertainment's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
