Is Vontier Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Vontier Corporation's P/E ratio

Vontier Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Vontier Corporation shares trade at around 14x 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.

Vontier Corporation's PEG ratio

Vontier Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9356. 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 Vontier Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Vontier Corporation's EBITDA

Vontier Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $693.6 million.

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

Shorting Vontier Corporation shares

There are currently 3.5 million Vontier Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Vontier Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.4% down from 3.8 million last month.

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

Vontier Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Vontier Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vontier Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vontier Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 762695.20697168). Vontier Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.59. In other words for every 100,000 Vontier Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4590 shares are currently held short.

However Vontier Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vontier Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vontier Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vontier Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vontier Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0207% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vontier Corporation shares, roughly 21 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 Vontier Corporation.

Vontier Corporation share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.72% of net profits

Recently Vontier Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vontier Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vontier Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.025 per share.

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

Vontier Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 22 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
