The long-term trend of the EPS is an important number as it indicates the present value of CAE. The EPS growth rate, as it is usually called, is typically displayed as a percentage, which at this time is hard to estimate, but revenue growth has been 9.90 % over the last twelve months. The long-term trend in EPS shows how well the management of CAE is adding value for shareholders.

The company has a market cap of $5.4b with 266.3m shares outstanding and a float of 266.3m shares. Trading volume was 193,932 shares and has experienced an average volume of 178,521 shares. Our calculation, using the current average volume and close price, leads me to believe that the liquidity is bad, highly speculative and an investor may want to avoid this stock.


The last annual reported EPS for CAE was 1 which ended on 31st of March 2018, which according to the previous close, that is a PE of 20.29. Based on 3 analyst estimates, the consensus EPS for the next quarter is 0.22. The trailing twelve month EPS is 0.80, which comes to a trailing twelve month PE of 25.36. Historically, the PE high was 29.90 and the PE low was 17.10. If the stock reached its PE low, that would represent a price of 13.68, which is a decrease of -32.57%.

The dividend per share is currently 0.30, which is a dividend yield of 1.49%. Also, the payout ratio is 37.74%, therefore the dividend is safe according to our calculations.

Base on our calculations, the intrinsic value per share is 13.95, which means it might overvalued by -45.43%

Indicators Also to Watch:

Based on the latest filings, there is 68.30% of institutional ownership. Short-interest was 348,254, which was 0.13% of shares outstanding. The short-interest ratio or days-to-cover ratio was 1.99. This stock has some short interest, but it might be normal and no need to worry if long the position.

I calculated the beta to be 0.80
