Darling Ingredients's P/E ratio

Darling Ingredients's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Darling Ingredients stocks trade at around 31x 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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.

Darling Ingredients's PEG ratio

Darling Ingredients's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 14.47. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Darling Ingredients's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Darling Ingredients's EBITDA

There are currently 2.8 million Darling Ingredients stocks held short by investors – that's known as Darling Ingredients's "short interest". This figure is 37.9% down from 4.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Darling Ingredients stocks can be evaluated.

Darling Ingredients's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Darling Ingredients's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Darling Ingredients stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Darling Ingredients stocks traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). Darling Ingredients's SIR currently stands at 0.93. In other words for every 100,000 Darling Ingredients stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 930 stocks are currently held short.

However Darling Ingredients's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Darling Ingredients stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Darling Ingredients stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Darling Ingredients's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Darling Ingredients stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0173% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Darling Ingredients stocks, roughly 17 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Darling Ingredients.

Have Darling Ingredients stocks ever split?

Darling Ingredients stocks were split on a 3:1 basis on 10 November 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Darling Ingredients stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Darling Ingredients stocks which in turn could have impacted Darling Ingredients's stock price.

Darling Ingredients stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Darling Ingredients's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $27.23 up to $79.65. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DAR.US volatility(beta: 1.05)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Darling Ingredients's is 1.0539. This would suggest that Darling Ingredients's stocks 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).
