Is HeadHunter Group under- or over-valued?

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

HeadHunter Group's P/E ratio

HeadHunter 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 60x. In other words, HeadHunter Group shares trade at around 60x 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.

Shorting HeadHunter Group shares

There are currently 43,535 HeadHunter Group shares held short by investors – that's known as HeadHunter Group's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 44,285 last month.

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

HeadHunter Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

HeadHunter Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HeadHunter Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HeadHunter Group shares traded daily (recently around 117662.16216216). HeadHunter Group's SIR currently stands at 0.37. In other words for every 100,000 HeadHunter Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 370 shares are currently held short.

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

HeadHunter Group share dividends

100%

Dividend payout ratio: 99.76% of net profits

Recently HeadHunter Group has paid out, on average, around 99.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HeadHunter Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HeadHunter Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

HeadHunter 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.

HeadHunter Group's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
