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.

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

Shorting Haverty Furniture Companies shares

There are currently 2.2 million Haverty Furniture Companies shares held short by investors – that's known as Haverty Furniture Companies's "short interest". This figure is 33.4% up from 1.6 million last month.

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

Haverty Furniture Companies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Haverty Furniture Companies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Haverty Furniture Companies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Haverty Furniture Companies shares traded daily (recently around 195084.64991023). Haverty Furniture Companies's SIR currently stands at 11.14. In other words for every 100,000 Haverty Furniture Companies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11140 shares are currently held short.

However Haverty Furniture Companies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Haverty Furniture Companies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Haverty Furniture Companies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Haverty Furniture Companies's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Haverty Furniture Companies shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1577% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Haverty Furniture Companies shares, roughly 158 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Haverty Furniture Companies.

Haverty Furniture Companies share dividends

95%

Dividend payout ratio: 94.58% of net profits

Recently Haverty Furniture Companies has paid out, on average, around 94.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Haverty Furniture Companies shareholders could enjoy a 1.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Haverty Furniture Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.79 per share.

Haverty Furniture Companies'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.

Haverty Furniture Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 24 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Haverty Furniture Companies's shares ever split?

Haverty Furniture Companies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 August 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Haverty Furniture Companies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Haverty Furniture Companies shares which in turn could have impacted Haverty Furniture Companies's share price.

Haverty Furniture Companies share price volatility

HVT.US volatility(beta: 1.51)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 Haverty Furniture Companies's is 1.5113. This would suggest that Haverty Furniture Companies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
