Is Wynn Resorts under- or over-valued?

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

Wynn Resorts's P/E ratio

Wynn Resorts's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 53x. In other words, Wynn Resorts shares trade at around 53x recent earnings.

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.

Wynn Resorts's PEG ratio

Wynn Resorts's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5285. 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 Wynn Resorts's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Wynn Resorts's EBITDA

Wynn Resorts's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$339.2 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Wynn Resorts's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Wynn Resorts shares

There are currently 9.7 million Wynn Resorts shares held short by investors – that's known as Wynn Resorts's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% up from 9.7 million last month.

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

Wynn Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Wynn Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wynn Resorts shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wynn Resorts shares traded daily (recently around 4.7 million). Wynn Resorts's SIR currently stands at 2.06. In other words for every 100,000 Wynn Resorts shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2060 shares are currently held short.

However Wynn Resorts's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wynn Resorts shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wynn Resorts shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wynn Resorts's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wynn Resorts shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1129% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wynn Resorts shares, roughly 113 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 Wynn Resorts.

Wynn Resorts's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Wynn Resorts.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Wynn Resorts's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 30.72

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Wynn Resorts's overall score of 30.72 (as at 08/01/2020) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 48th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Wynn Resorts is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Wynn Resorts's environmental score

Environmental score: 8.11/100

Wynn Resorts's environmental score of 8.11 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Wynn Resorts is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Wynn Resorts's social score

Social score: 15.81/100

Wynn Resorts's social score of 15.81 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Wynn Resorts is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Wynn Resorts scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Wynn Resorts hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Wynn Resorts share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 326.09% of net profits

Recently Wynn Resorts has paid out, on average, around 326.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wynn Resorts shareholders could enjoy a 5.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wynn Resorts's case, that would currently equate to about $4 per share.

Wynn Resorts'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.

Wynn Resorts's most recent dividend payout was on 6 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Wynn Resorts share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Wynn Resorts's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.84 up to $153.41. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WYNN.US volatility(beta: 2.38)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 Wynn Resorts's is 2.3763. This would suggest that Wynn Resorts's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
