Is Jabil under- or over-valued?
Valuing Jabil stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Jabil's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Jabil's P/E ratio
Jabil's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Jabil shares trade at around 14x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Jabil's PEG ratio
Jabil's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.91. 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 Jabil's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Jabil's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Jabil's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$29.3 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||3.64%|
|Gross profit TTM||$2.4 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||4.29%|
|Return on equity TTM||35.23%|
|Market capitalisation||$9.1 billion|

Shorting Jabil shares
There are currently 2.3 million Jabil shares held short by investors – that's known as Jabil's "short interest". This figure is 26.9% up from 1.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Jabil shares can be evaluated.
Jabil's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Jabil's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Jabil shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Jabil shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Jabil's SIR currently stands at 2.15. In other words for every 100,000 Jabil shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2150 shares are currently held short.
However Jabil's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Jabil shares, or, against the total number of tradable Jabil shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Jabil's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Jabil shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0171% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Jabil shares, roughly 17 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 Jabil.
Jabil share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 5.7% of net profits
Recently Jabil has paid out, on average, around 5.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Jabil shareholders could enjoy a 0.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Jabil's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.
While Jabil's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Jabil is investing more in its future growth.
Jabil's most recent dividend payout was on 2 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Jabil's shares ever split?
Jabil's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 March 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Jabil shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Jabil shares which in turn could have impacted Jabil's share price.
Jabil share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Jabil's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.1394 up to $64.32. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Jabil's is 1.3545. This would suggest that Jabil's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
