Is Eli Lilly and Company under- or over-valued?

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.

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

There are currently 6.3 million Eli Lilly and Company stocks held short by investors – that's known as Eli Lilly and Company's "short interest". This figure is 17.6% down from 7.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Eli Lilly and Company stocks can be evaluated.

Eli Lilly and Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Eli Lilly and Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eli Lilly and Company stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eli Lilly and Company stocks traded daily (recently around 4.3 million). Eli Lilly and Company's SIR currently stands at 1.44. In other words for every 100,000 Eli Lilly and Company stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1440 stocks are currently held short.

However Eli Lilly and Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eli Lilly and Company stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Eli Lilly and Company stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eli Lilly and Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Eli Lilly and Company stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0073% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Eli Lilly and Company stocks, roughly 7 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 Eli Lilly and Company.

Eli Lilly and Company stock dividends

41%

Dividend payout ratio: 40.87% of net profits

Recently Eli Lilly and Company has paid out, on average, around 40.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eli Lilly and Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eli Lilly and Company's case, that would currently equate to about $3.07 per share.

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

Eli Lilly and Company's most recent dividend payout was on 10 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Eli Lilly and Company stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Eli Lilly and Company stocks which in turn could have impacted Eli Lilly and Company's stock price.
