Is Janus Henderson under- or over-valued?
Valuing Janus Henderson stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Janus Henderson's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Janus Henderson's P/E ratio
Janus Henderson's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 94x. In other words, Janus Henderson shares trade at around 94x 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.
Janus Henderson's EBITDA
Janus Henderson's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $644.6 million (£0.0 million).

Janus Henderson share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 317.65% of net profits
Recently Janus Henderson has paid out, on average, around 317.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Janus Henderson shareholders could enjoy a 4.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Janus Henderson's case, that would currently equate to about A$1.97 per share.
Janus Henderson's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Janus Henderson's shares ever split?
Janus Henderson's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 25 May 2017. So if you had owned 10 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 Janus Henderson shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Janus Henderson shares which in turn could have impacted Janus Henderson's share price.
Janus Henderson share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Janus Henderson's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.2469 up to $45.25. 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 Janus Henderson's is 1.4156. This would suggest that Janus Henderson's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
