Is Oshkosh Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Oshkosh Corporation's P/E ratio

Oshkosh Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Oshkosh Corporation stocks trade at around 15x 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.

Oshkosh Corporation's PEG ratio

Oshkosh Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.5374. 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 Oshkosh Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Oshkosh Corporation's EBITDA

Oshkosh Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$655.5 million.

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

How to short and sell Oshkosh Corporation stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "OSK.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 1.5 million Oshkosh Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as Oshkosh Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 24.9% up from 1.2 million last month.

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

Oshkosh Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Oshkosh Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oshkosh Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oshkosh Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 479040.25559105). Oshkosh Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.13. In other words for every 100,000 Oshkosh Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3130 stocks are currently held short.

However Oshkosh Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oshkosh Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Oshkosh Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oshkosh Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Oshkosh Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.022% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Oshkosh Corporation stocks, roughly 22 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 Oshkosh Corporation.

Oshkosh Corporation stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22% of net profits

Recently Oshkosh Corporation has paid out, on average, around 22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Oshkosh Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Oshkosh Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.29 per share.

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

Oshkosh Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 13 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Oshkosh Corporation stocks ever split?

Oshkosh Corporation stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 August 2005. 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 Oshkosh Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Oshkosh Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted Oshkosh Corporation's stock price.

Oshkosh Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Oshkosh Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $65.8684 up to $137.0916. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OSK.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Oshkosh Corporation's is 1.5235. This would suggest that Oshkosh Corporation's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
