Is HT&E under- or over-valued?
Valuing HT&E stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of HT&E 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
HT&E 's P/E ratio
HT&E 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, HT&E shares trade at around 21x 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.
HT&E 's EBITDA
HT&E 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $44.4 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a HT&E 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$214.1 million|
|Operating margin TTM||19.29%|
|Gross profit TTM||$51.8 million|
|Return on assets TTM||3.75%|
|Return on equity TTM||6.38%|
|Market capitalisation||$622.2 million|

HT&E share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 35% of net profits
Recently HT&E has paid out, on average, around 35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HT&E shareholders could enjoy a 1.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HT&E 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.035 per share.
While HT&E 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that HT&E may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have HT&E 's shares ever split?
HT&E 's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 19 June 2016. So if you had owned 7 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 HT&E shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for HT&E shares which in turn could have impacted HT&E 's share price.
HT&E share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, HT&E 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.46 up to $2.2. 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 HT&E 's is 0.8426. This would suggest that HT&E 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
