Is Lifetime Brands under- or over-valued?

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

Lifetime Brands's P/E ratio

Lifetime Brands's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Lifetime Brands stocks trade at around 11x 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.

Lifetime Brands's PEG ratio

Lifetime Brands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8015. 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 Lifetime Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Lifetime Brands's EBITDA

Lifetime Brands's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$84.6 million.

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

There are currently 99,423 Lifetime Brands stocks held short by investors – that's known as Lifetime Brands's "short interest". This figure is 2.8% down from 102,239 last month.

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

Lifetime Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lifetime Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lifetime Brands stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lifetime Brands stocks traded daily (recently around 83548.739495798). Lifetime Brands's SIR currently stands at 1.19. In other words for every 100,000 Lifetime Brands stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1190 stocks are currently held short.

However Lifetime Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lifetime Brands stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Lifetime Brands stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lifetime Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Lifetime Brands stocks in existence, roughly 0 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0084% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Lifetime Brands stocks, roughly 8 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 Lifetime Brands.

Lifetime Brands stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 11.49% of net profits

Recently Lifetime Brands has paid out, on average, around 11.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lifetime Brands shareholders could enjoy a 1.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lifetime Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.17 per share.

While Lifetime Brands's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Lifetime Brands is investing more in its future growth.

Lifetime Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 16 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 30 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Lifetime Brands stocks ever split?

Lifetime Brands stocks were split on a 11:10 basis on 13 February 1997. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lifetime Brands stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Lifetime Brands stocks which in turn could have impacted Lifetime Brands's stock price.

Lifetime Brands stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lifetime Brands's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $6.927 up to $17.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LCUT.US volatility(beta: 1.31)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Lifetime Brands's is 1.3123. This would suggest that Lifetime Brands's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
