Is PVH under- or over-valued?

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

PVH's P/E ratio

PVH's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 130x. In other words, PVH shares trade at around 130x 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.

PVH's PEG ratio

PVH's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.1711. 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 PVH's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


PVH's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$776 million.

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

Shorting PVH shares

There are currently 1.4 million PVH shares held short by investors – that's known as PVH's "short interest". This figure is 25.2% down from 1.8 million last month.

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

PVH's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PVH's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PVH shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PVH shares traded daily (recently around 871056.32911392). PVH's SIR currently stands at 1.58. In other words for every 100,000 PVH shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1580 shares are currently held short.

However PVH's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PVH shares, or, against the total number of tradable PVH shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PVH's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PVH shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0304% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PVH shares, roughly 30 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 PVH.

PVH share dividends

We're not expecting PVH to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have PVH's shares ever split?

PVH's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 October 1991. 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 PVH shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PVH shares which in turn could have impacted PVH's share price.

PVH share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PVH's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$41.77 up to US$121.18. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PVH.US volatility(beta: 2.38)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 PVH's is 2.3755. This would suggest that PVH's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
