Is Rayonier under- or over-valued?
Valuing Rayonier stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Rayonier's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Rayonier's P/E ratio
Rayonier's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 233x. In other words, Rayonier stocks trade at around 233x recent earnings.
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.
Rayonier's PEG ratio
Rayonier's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.3981. 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 Rayonier's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Rayonier's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$272.3 million.

There are currently 4.7 million Rayonier stocks held short by investors – that's known as Rayonier's "short interest". This figure is 22.6% up from 3.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Rayonier stocks can be evaluated.
Rayonier's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Rayonier's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rayonier stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rayonier stocks traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Rayonier's SIR currently stands at 4.71. In other words for every 100,000 Rayonier stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4710 stocks are currently held short.
However Rayonier's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rayonier stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Rayonier stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rayonier's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Rayonier stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0341% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Rayonier stocks, roughly 34 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 Rayonier.

Rayonier stock dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4.91% of net profits
Recently Rayonier has paid out, on average, around 4.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Rayonier shareholders could enjoy a 2.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Rayonier's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.
While Rayonier's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Rayonier is investing more in its future growth.
Rayonier's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 14 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Rayonier stocks ever split?
Rayonier stocks were split on a 1339:1000 basis on 29 June 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1339 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Rayonier stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25.3% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Rayonier stocks which in turn could have impacted Rayonier's stock price.
