Is Valvoline under- or over-valued?

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

Valvoline's P/E ratio

Valvoline's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Valvoline shares trade at around 17x 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.

Valvoline's PEG ratio

Valvoline's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3163. 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 Valvoline's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Valvoline's EBITDA

Valvoline's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$441 million.

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

There are currently 4.1 million Valvoline shares held short by investors – that's known as Valvoline's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 4.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Valvoline shares can be evaluated.

Valvoline's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Valvoline's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Valvoline shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Valvoline shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Valvoline's SIR currently stands at 2.63. In other words for every 100,000 Valvoline shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2630 shares are currently held short.

However Valvoline's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Valvoline shares, or, against the total number of tradable Valvoline shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Valvoline's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Valvoline shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0224% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Valvoline shares, roughly 22 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Valvoline.

Valvoline share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 31.83% of net profits

Recently Valvoline has paid out, on average, around 31.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Valvoline shareholders could enjoy a 2.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Valvoline's case, that would currently equate to about $0.45 per share.

While Valvoline's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Valvoline may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Valvoline's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Valvoline share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Valvoline's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.06 up to $23.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VVV.US volatility(beta: 1.44)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Valvoline's is 1.4388. This would suggest that Valvoline's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
