Is DHI Group under- or over-valued?

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

DHI Group's P/E ratio

DHI Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 46x. In other words, DHI Group shares trade at around 46x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

DHI Group's PEG ratio

DHI Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4957. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into DHI Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

DHI Group's EBITDA

DHI Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$24.9 million.

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

Shorting DHI Group shares

There are currently 309,626 DHI Group shares held short by investors – that's known as DHI Group's "short interest". This figure is 22.2% down from 398,194 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DHI Group shares can be evaluated.

DHI Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

DHI Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DHI Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DHI Group shares traded daily (recently around 76640.099009901). DHI Group's SIR currently stands at 4.04. In other words for every 100,000 DHI Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4040 shares are currently held short.

However DHI Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DHI Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable DHI Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DHI Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DHI Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0065% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DHI Group shares, roughly 7 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against DHI Group.

This would suggest that DHI Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
