Is RPM International under- or over-valued?

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

RPM International's P/E ratio

RPM International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, RPM International stocks trade at around 21x 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.

RPM International's PEG ratio

RPM International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9353. 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 RPM International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

RPM International's EBITDA

RPM International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$875.4 million.

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

There are currently 1.7 million RPM International stocks held short by investors – that's known as RPM International's "short interest". This figure is 21.8% up from 1.4 million last month.

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

RPM International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

RPM International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RPM International stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RPM International stocks traded daily (recently around 505269.55223881). RPM International's SIR currently stands at 3.35. In other words for every 100,000 RPM International stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3350 stocks are currently held short.

However RPM International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RPM International stocks, or, against the total number of tradable RPM International stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RPM International's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 RPM International stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0132% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable RPM International stocks, roughly 13 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 RPM International.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

RPM International's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 50.89

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and RPM International's overall score of 50.89 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 101st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like RPM International is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

RPM International's environmental score

Environmental score: 30.61/100

RPM International's environmental score of 30.61 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that RPM International is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

RPM International's social score

Social score: 17.79/100

RPM International's social score of 17.79 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that RPM International is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

RPM International stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 52.78% of net profits

Recently RPM International has paid out, on average, around 52.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), RPM International shareholders could enjoy a 1.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RPM International's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.

RPM International's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

RPM International's most recent dividend payout was on 30 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 14 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have RPM International stocks ever split?

RPM International stocks were split on a 5:4 basis on 9 December 1997. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your RPM International stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for RPM International stocks which in turn could have impacted RPM International's stock price.

RPM International stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, RPM International's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $76.8037 up to $98.8748. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RPM.US volatility(beta: 0.96)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 RPM International's is 0.9635. This would suggest that RPM International's stocks are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
