Is C-HRobinson Worldwide under- or over-valued?

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

C-HRobinson Worldwide's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, C-HRobinson Worldwide shares trade at around 20x 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.

C-HRobinson Worldwide's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6401. 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 C-HRobinson Worldwide's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting C-HRobinson Worldwide shares

There are currently 10.9 million C-HRobinson Worldwide shares held short by investors – that's known as C-HRobinson Worldwide's "short interest". This figure is 2.8% up from 10.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting C-HRobinson Worldwide shares can be evaluated.

C-HRobinson Worldwide's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

C-HRobinson Worldwide's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of C-HRobinson Worldwide shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of C-HRobinson Worldwide shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). C-HRobinson Worldwide's SIR currently stands at 9.11. In other words for every 100,000 C-HRobinson Worldwide shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9110 shares are currently held short.

However C-HRobinson Worldwide's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of C-HRobinson Worldwide shares, or, against the total number of tradable C-HRobinson Worldwide shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case C-HRobinson Worldwide's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 C-HRobinson Worldwide shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0829% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable C-HRobinson Worldwide shares, roughly 83 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 C-HRobinson Worldwide.

C-HRobinson Worldwide share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 42.5% of net profits

Recently C-HRobinson Worldwide has paid out, on average, around 42.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), C-HRobinson Worldwide shareholders could enjoy a 2.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In C-HRobinson Worldwide's case, that would currently equate to about $2.04 per share.

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

C-HRobinson Worldwide's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have C-HRobinson Worldwide's shares ever split?

C-HRobinson Worldwide's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 October 2005. 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 C-HRobinson Worldwide shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for C-HRobinson Worldwide shares which in turn could have impacted C-HRobinson Worldwide's share price.
