Is HRL under- or over-valued?
Valuing HRL stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of HRL's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
HRL's P/E ratio
HRL's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, HRL shares trade at around 38x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
HRL's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.3 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a HRL's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$34.6 million|
|Operating margin TTM||10.79%|
|Gross profit TTM||$11.1 million|
|Return on assets TTM||6.39%|
|Return on equity TTM||4.9%|
|Market capitalisation||$56.9 million|

HRL share dividends
We're not expecting HRL to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have HRL's shares ever split?
HRL's shares were split on a 1:13 basis on 3 March 2015. So if you had owned 13 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 HRL shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for HRL shares which in turn could have impacted HRL's share price.
HRL share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, HRL's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.1 up to $0.145. 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 HRL's is 0.8387. This would suggest that HRL's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
