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 16x. In other words, Jabil stocks trade at around 16x 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 stocks 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 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 Jabil's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Jabil's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Jabil's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||USD$29.2 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||3.91%|
|Gross profit TTM||USD$1.9 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||4.9%|
|Return on equity TTM||31.3%|
|Market capitalisation||USD$8.9 billion|

There are currently 1.8 million Jabil stocks held short by investors – that's known as Jabil's "short interest". This figure is 12.9% down from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Jabil stocks can be evaluated.
Jabil's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Jabil's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Jabil stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Jabil stocks traded daily (recently around 600090.39735099). Jabil's SIR currently stands at 3.02. In other words for every 100,000 Jabil stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3020 stocks are currently held short.
However Jabil's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Jabil stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Jabil stocks (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 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Jabil stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0135% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Jabil stocks, roughly 14 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 Jabil.

Jabil stock dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 6.21% of net profits
Recently Jabil has paid out, on average, around 6.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.53% 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 0.53% 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 stocks by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Jabil stocks ever split?
Jabil stocks 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 stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Jabil stocks which in turn could have impacted Jabil's stock price.
Jabil stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Jabil's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $31.1394 up to $63.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Jabil's is 1.3548. This would suggest that Jabil's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
