Is Dole under- or over-valued?

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

Dole's P/E ratio

Dole's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 95x. In other words, Dole stocks trade at around 95x 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.

However, Dole's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the farm products industry or those of similar companies.


Dole's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$114.9 million.

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

To put Dole's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "DOLE.US"

There are currently 897,216 Dole stocks held short by investors – that's known as Dole's "short interest". This figure is up from 0 last month.

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

Dole's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dole's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dole stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dole stocks traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Dole's SIR currently stands at 0.49. In other words for every 100,000 Dole stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 490 stocks are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Dole's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Dole's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dole stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Dole stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dole's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Dole stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0031% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Dole stocks, roughly 3 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 Dole.
