Is DHT under- or over-valued?

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

DHT's P/E ratio

DHT's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, DHT shares trade at around 4x recent earnings.

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

DHT's PEG ratio

DHT's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.77. 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 DHT's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

DHT's EBITDA

DHT's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $437.6 million.

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

Shorting DHT shares

There are currently 5.6 million DHT shares held short by investors – that's known as DHT's "short interest". This figure is 30.6% up from 4.3 million last month.

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

DHT's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

DHT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DHT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DHT shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million). DHT's SIR currently stands at 1.95. In other words for every 100,000 DHT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1950 shares are currently held short.

However DHT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DHT shares, or, against the total number of tradable DHT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DHT's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DHT shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0416% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DHT shares, roughly 42 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 DHT.

DHT share dividends

64%

Dividend payout ratio: 63.95% of net profits

Recently DHT has paid out, on average, around 63.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), DHT shareholders could enjoy a 18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DHT's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.

DHT'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.

DHT's most recent dividend payout was on 24 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have DHT's shares ever split?

DHT's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 16 July 2012. So if you had owned 12 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 DHT shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for DHT shares which in turn could have impacted DHT's share price.

DHT share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, DHT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.4253 up to $6.62. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while DHT's is -0.2537. This would suggest that DHT's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, DHT has bucked the trend.
