Is Helloworld Travel under- or over-valued?

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

Helloworld Travel 's P/E ratio

Helloworld Travel 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Helloworld Travel shares trade at around 6x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Helloworld Travel 's EBITDA

Helloworld Travel 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $22.3 million (£0.0 million).

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

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

Have Helloworld Travel 's shares ever split?

Helloworld Travel 's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 27 January 2016. So if you had owned 6 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Helloworld Travel shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Helloworld Travel shares which in turn could have impacted Helloworld Travel 's share price.

Helloworld Travel share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Helloworld Travel 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.67 up to $5.03. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HLO.AU volatility(beta: 1.08)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Helloworld Travel 's is 1.0831. This would suggest that Helloworld Travel 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
