Is it a good time to buy Flowserve Corporation stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Flowserve Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Flowserve Corporation's P/E ratio

Flowserve 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 34x. In other words, Flowserve Corporation shares trade at around 34x 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 shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Flowserve Corporation's PEG ratio

Flowserve Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.9489. 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 Flowserve 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.

Flowserve Corporation's EBITDA

Flowserve Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $445.9 million.

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

How to short and sell Flowserve Corporation shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "FLS.US"

  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 5.2 million Flowserve Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Flowserve Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.1% down from 5.6 million last month.

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

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

Flowserve Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Flowserve Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Flowserve Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 823637.95275591). Flowserve Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.35. In other words for every 100,000 Flowserve Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6350 shares are currently held short.

However Flowserve Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Flowserve Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Flowserve Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Flowserve Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Flowserve Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0617% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Flowserve Corporation shares, roughly 62 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 Flowserve Corporation.

Flowserve Corporation'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 Flowserve Corporation.

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

Flowserve Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 40.61

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Flowserve Corporation's overall score of 40.61 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 83rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Flowserve Corporation 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.).

Flowserve Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 11.6/100

Flowserve Corporation's environmental score of 11.6 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Flowserve Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Flowserve Corporation's social score

Social score: 21.51/100

Flowserve Corporation's social score of 21.51 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Flowserve Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Flowserve Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 8/100

Flowserve Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Flowserve Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Flowserve Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, Flowserve Corporation scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Flowserve Corporation has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Flowserve Corporation was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 40.61
Total ESG percentile 82.98
Environmental score 11.6
Environmental score percentile 3
Social score 21.51
Social score percentile 3
Governance score 8
Governance score percentile 3
Level of controversy 2

Flowserve Corporation share dividends

42%

Dividend payout ratio: 42.11% of net profits

Recently Flowserve Corporation has paid out, on average, around 42.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Flowserve Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Flowserve Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

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

Flowserve Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 8 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Flowserve Corporation's shares ever split?

Flowserve Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 24 June 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Flowserve Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Flowserve Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Flowserve Corporation's share price.

Flowserve Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Flowserve Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.4533 up to $48.0389. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FLS.US volatility(beta: 1.76)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 Flowserve Corporation's is 1.7568. This would suggest that Flowserve Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
