Is HGL under- or over-valued?
Valuing HGL stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of HGL 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
HGL 's P/E ratio
HGL 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, HGL shares trade at around 3x 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.
HGL 's EBITDA
HGL 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a HGL 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$15.4 million|
|Gross profit TTM||$13.9 million|
|Return on assets TTM||-3.98%|
|Return on equity TTM||31.32%|
|Market capitalisation||$39.4 million|

We're not expecting HGL to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have HGL 's shares ever split?
HGL 's shares were split on a 110:100 basis on 9 February 1998. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 110 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your HGL shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HGL shares which in turn could have impacted HGL 's share price.
HGL share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, HGL 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.13 up to $0.26. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while HGL 's is 0.7535. This would suggest that HGL 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
