Is GreenTree Hospitality Group under- or over-valued?

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

GreenTree Hospitality Group's P/E ratio

GreenTree Hospitality 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 25x. In other words, GreenTree Hospitality Group shares trade at around 25x 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 GreenTree Hospitality Group shares

There are currently 53,524 GreenTree Hospitality Group shares held short by investors – that's known as GreenTree Hospitality Group's "short interest". This figure is 22.7% down from 69,201 last month.

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

GreenTree Hospitality Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

GreenTree Hospitality Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GreenTree Hospitality Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GreenTree Hospitality Group shares traded daily (recently around 20429.007633588). GreenTree Hospitality Group's SIR currently stands at 2.62. In other words for every 100,000 GreenTree Hospitality Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2620 shares are currently held short.

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

GreenTree Hospitality Group share dividends

71%

Dividend payout ratio: 71.4% of net profits

Recently GreenTree Hospitality Group has paid out, on average, around 71.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GreenTree Hospitality Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GreenTree Hospitality Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.55 per share.

GreenTree Hospitality Group'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.

GreenTree Hospitality Group's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 December 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").

GreenTree Hospitality Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, GreenTree Hospitality Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.14 up to $15.17. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GHG.US volatility(beta: 0.78)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while GreenTree Hospitality Group's is 0.7771. This would suggest that GreenTree Hospitality Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
