Is HDFC Bank under- or over-valued?
Valuing HDFC Bank stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of HDFC Bank's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
HDFC Bank's P/E ratio
HDFC Bank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 176x. In other words, HDFC Bank shares trade at around 176x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
HDFC Bank's PEG ratio
HDFC Bank's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.97. 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 HDFC Bank'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 HDFC Bank shares
There are currently 3.1 million HDFC Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as HDFC Bank's "short interest". This figure is 19.7% down from 3.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting HDFC Bank shares can be evaluated.
HDFC Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
HDFC Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HDFC Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HDFC Bank shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). HDFC Bank's SIR currently stands at 2.09. In other words for every 100,000 HDFC Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2090 shares are currently held short.
However HDFC Bank's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HDFC Bank shares, or, against the total number of tradable HDFC Bank shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HDFC Bank's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HDFC Bank shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0003% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HDFC Bank 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 HDFC Bank.

HDFC Bank share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 18.54% of net profits
Recently HDFC Bank has paid out, on average, around 18.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HDFC Bank shareholders could enjoy a 0.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HDFC Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $6.5 per share.
While HDFC Bank's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that HDFC Bank is investing more in its future growth.
HDFC Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 22 August 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have HDFC Bank's shares ever split?
HDFC Bank's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 September 2019. 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 HDFC Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HDFC Bank shares which in turn could have impacted HDFC Bank's share price.
HDFC Bank share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, HDFC Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $45.0685 up to $84.0816. 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 HDFC Bank's is 0.9005. This would suggest that HDFC Bank's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
