Is DLH under- or over-valued?
Valuing DLH stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of DLH's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
DLH's P/E ratio
DLH's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, DLH shares trade at around 19x 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.
DLH's PEG ratio
DLH's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1263. 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 DLH's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
DLH's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $23.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a DLH's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$221.5 million|
|Operating margin TTM||7.08%|
|Gross profit TTM||$45.6 million|
|Return on assets TTM||5.67%|

Shorting DLH shares
There are currently 4,217 DLH shares held short by investors – that's known as DLH's "short interest". This figure is 82.8% down from 24,476 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DLH shares can be evaluated.
DLH's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
DLH's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DLH shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DLH shares traded daily (recently around 15618.518518519). DLH's SIR currently stands at 0.27. In other words for every 100,000 DLH shares traded daily on the market, roughly 270 shares are currently held short.
However DLH's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DLH shares, or, against the total number of tradable DLH shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DLH's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DLH shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0006% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DLH shares, roughly 1 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 DLH.

Have DLH's shares ever split?
DLH's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 20 April 2008. So if you had owned 4 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 DLH shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for DLH shares which in turn could have impacted DLH's share price.
DLH share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, DLH's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.11 up to $13.14. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while DLH's is 0.9918. This would suggest that DLH's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
