Is Thor Industries under- or over-valued?
Valuing Thor Industries stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Thor Industries's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Thor Industries's P/E ratio
Thor Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Thor Industries shares trade at around 9x 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 shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Thor Industries's PEG ratio
Thor Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.8. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Thor Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Thor Industries's EBITDA
Thor Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.1 billion.

Shorting Thor Industries shares
There are currently 3.9 million Thor Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Thor Industries's "short interest". This figure is 9.4% up from 3.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Thor Industries shares can be evaluated.
Thor Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Thor Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Thor Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Thor Industries shares traded daily (recently around 604189.13043478). Thor Industries's SIR currently stands at 6.44. In other words for every 100,000 Thor Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6440 shares are currently held short.
However Thor Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Thor Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Thor Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Thor Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Thor Industries shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0733% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Thor Industries shares, roughly 73 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Thor Industries.
Thor Industries's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Thor Industries.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Thor Industries's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 32.65
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Thor Industries's overall score of 32.65 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 55th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Thor Industries 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.).
Thor Industries's environmental score
Environmental score: 12.37/100
Thor Industries's environmental score of 12.37 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Thor Industries is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Thor Industries's social score
Social score: 19.51/100
Thor Industries's social score of 19.51 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Thor Industries is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Thor Industries's governance score
Governance score: 9.77/100
Thor Industries's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Thor Industries is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Thor Industries share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 14.02% of net profits
Recently Thor Industries has paid out, on average, around 14.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Thor Industries shareholders could enjoy a 1.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Thor Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $1.64 per share.
While Thor Industries's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Thor Industries is investing more in its future growth.
Thor Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 16 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Thor Industries's shares ever split?
Thor Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 January 2004. 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 Thor Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Thor Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Thor Industries's share price.
Thor Industries share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Thor Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $77.7876 up to $151.1899. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Thor Industries's is 2.2429. This would suggest that Thor Industries's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
