Is Teledyne FLIR LLC under- or over-valued?

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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Teledyne FLIR LLC'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 Teledyne FLIR LLC shares

There are currently 8.7 million Teledyne FLIR LLC shares held short by investors – that's known as Teledyne FLIR LLC's "short interest". This figure is 27.1% up from 6.8 million last month.

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

Teledyne FLIR LLC's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Teledyne FLIR LLC's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Teledyne FLIR LLC shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Teledyne FLIR LLC shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Teledyne FLIR LLC's SIR currently stands at 6.84. In other words for every 100,000 Teledyne FLIR LLC shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6840 shares are currently held short.

However Teledyne FLIR LLC's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Teledyne FLIR LLC shares, or, against the total number of tradable Teledyne FLIR LLC shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Teledyne FLIR LLC's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Teledyne FLIR LLC shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0742% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Teledyne FLIR LLC shares, roughly 74 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 Teledyne FLIR LLC.

Teledyne FLIR LLC share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.67% of net profits

Recently Teledyne FLIR LLC has paid out, on average, around 26.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Teledyne FLIR LLC shareholders could enjoy a 1.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Teledyne FLIR LLC's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

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

Teledyne FLIR LLC's most recent dividend payout was on 3 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Teledyne FLIR LLC's shares ever split?

Teledyne FLIR LLC's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 December 2007. 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 Teledyne FLIR LLC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Teledyne FLIR LLC shares which in turn could have impacted Teledyne FLIR LLC's share price.

Teledyne FLIR LLC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Teledyne FLIR LLC's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$33.1362 up to US$60.66. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FLIR.US volatility(beta: 1.56)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Teledyne FLIR LLC's is 1.5583. This would suggest that Teledyne FLIR LLC's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
