Is Celanese Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Celanese Corporation's P/E ratio

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

Celanese Corporation's PEG ratio

Celanese Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.7848. 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 Celanese Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Celanese Corporation's EBITDA

Celanese Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1 billion.

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

There are currently 1.5 million Celanese Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Celanese Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.4% down from 1.7 million last month.

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

Celanese Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Celanese Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Celanese Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Celanese Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 853527.37430168). Celanese Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.79. In other words for every 100,000 Celanese Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1790 shares are currently held short.

However Celanese Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Celanese Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Celanese Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Celanese Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Celanese Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0149% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Celanese Corporation shares, roughly 15 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 Celanese Corporation.

Celanese Corporation share dividends

33%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.93% of net profits

Recently Celanese Corporation has paid out, on average, around 32.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Celanese Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Celanese Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.48 per share.

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

Celanese Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 10 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Celanese Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Celanese Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $51.669 up to $139.72. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CE.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 Celanese Corporation's is 1.2096. This would suggest that Celanese Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
