Is HEICO Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

HEICO Corporation's P/E ratio

HEICO Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 71x. In other words, HEICO Corporation shares trade at around 71x 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.

HEICO Corporation's PEG ratio

HEICO Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.3793. 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 HEICO Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

HEICO Corporation's EBITDA

HEICO Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$436.5 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a HEICO Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting HEICO Corporation shares

There are currently 1.2 million HEICO Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as HEICO Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18.1% up from 1.1 million last month.

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

HEICO Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

HEICO Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HEICO Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HEICO Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 330580.95238095). HEICO Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.78. In other words for every 100,000 HEICO Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3780 shares are currently held short.

However HEICO Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HEICO Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable HEICO Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HEICO Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HEICO Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.028% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HEICO Corporation shares, roughly 28 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 HEICO Corporation.

HEICO Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 8.38% of net profits

Recently HEICO Corporation has paid out, on average, around 8.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HEICO Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HEICO Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.

While HEICO Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that HEICO Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

HEICO Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 20 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have HEICO Corporation's shares ever split?

HEICO Corporation's shares were split on a 125:100 basis on 27 June 2018. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 125 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your HEICO Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HEICO Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted HEICO Corporation's share price.

HEICO Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, HEICO Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $74.1456 up to $141.31. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HEI.US volatility(beta: 1.26)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 HEICO Corporation's is 1.2642. This would suggest that HEICO Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
