Valmont 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 32x. In other words, Valmont Industries stocks trade at around 32x 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.

Valmont Industries's PEG ratio

Valmont Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.31. 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 Valmont Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 220,646 Valmont Industries stocks held short by investors – that's known as Valmont Industries's "short interest". This figure is 13.4% down from 254,843 last month.

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

Valmont Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Valmont Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Valmont Industries stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Valmont Industries stocks traded daily (recently around 132123.35329341). Valmont Industries's SIR currently stands at 1.67. In other words for every 100,000 Valmont Industries stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1670 stocks are currently held short.

However Valmont Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Valmont Industries stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Valmont Industries stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Valmont Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Valmont Industries stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0106% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Valmont Industries stocks, roughly 11 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 Valmont Industries.

Valmont Industries stock dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.69% of net profits

Recently Valmont Industries has paid out, on average, around 21.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Valmont Industries shareholders could enjoy a 0.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Valmont Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $1.85 per share.

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

Valmont Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 23 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Valmont Industries stocks ever split?

Valmont Industries stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 June 1997. 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 Valmont Industries stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Valmont Industries stocks which in turn could have impacted Valmont Industries's stock price.

Valmont Industries stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Valmont Industries's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $116.5469 up to $264.5094. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VMI.US volatility(beta: 1.19)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 Valmont Industries's is 1.191. This would suggest that Valmont Industries's stocks are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
