Is Euro Tech Holdings Company under- or over-valued?

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

Euro Tech Holdings Company's P/E ratio

Euro Tech Holdings Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Euro Tech Holdings Company shares trade at around 17x 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.

Shorting Euro Tech Holdings Company shares

There are currently 4,266 Euro Tech Holdings Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Euro Tech Holdings Company's "short interest". This figure is 577.1% up from 630 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Euro Tech Holdings Company shares can be evaluated.

Euro Tech Holdings Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Euro Tech Holdings Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Euro Tech Holdings Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Euro Tech Holdings Company shares traded daily (recently around 142200). Euro Tech Holdings Company's SIR currently stands at 0.03. In other words for every 100,000 Euro Tech Holdings Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 30 shares are currently held short.

However Euro Tech Holdings Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Euro Tech Holdings Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Euro Tech Holdings Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Euro Tech Holdings Company's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Euro Tech Holdings Company shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0031% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Euro Tech Holdings Company shares, roughly 3 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 Euro Tech Holdings Company.

Euro Tech Holdings Company share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 300% of net profits

Recently Euro Tech Holdings Company has paid out, on average, around 300% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 20.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Euro Tech Holdings Company shareholders could enjoy a 20.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Euro Tech Holdings Company's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.

Euro Tech Holdings Company'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.

Euro Tech Holdings Company's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Euro Tech Holdings Company's shares ever split?

Euro Tech Holdings Company's shares were split on a 10:55 basis on 17 January 2012. So if you had owned 55 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Euro Tech Holdings Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 450% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Euro Tech Holdings Company shares which in turn could have impacted Euro Tech Holdings Company's share price.

Euro Tech Holdings Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Euro Tech Holdings Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.5471 up to $7.56. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CLWT.US volatility(beta: 0.97)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Euro Tech Holdings Company's is 0.9658. This would suggest that Euro Tech Holdings Company's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
