Is Janus Henderson Group under- or over-valued?

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

Janus Henderson Group's P/E ratio

Janus Henderson 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 74x. In other words, Janus Henderson Group shares trade at around 74x 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.

Janus Henderson Group's PEG ratio

Janus Henderson Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1. 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 Janus Henderson Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Janus Henderson Group's EBITDA

Janus Henderson Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$638.7 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Janus Henderson Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Janus Henderson Group shares

There are currently 12.9 million Janus Henderson Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Janus Henderson Group's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% up from 12.8 million last month.

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

Janus Henderson Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Janus Henderson Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Janus Henderson Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Janus Henderson Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Janus Henderson Group's SIR currently stands at 8.09. In other words for every 100,000 Janus Henderson Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8090 shares are currently held short.

However Janus Henderson Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Janus Henderson Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Janus Henderson Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Janus Henderson Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Janus Henderson Group shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0858% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Janus Henderson Group shares, roughly 86 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Janus Henderson Group.

Janus Henderson Group share dividends

56%

Dividend payout ratio: 56.25% of net profits

Recently Janus Henderson Group has paid out, on average, around 56.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Janus Henderson Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Janus Henderson Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.44 per share.

Janus Henderson 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.

Janus Henderson Group's most recent dividend payout was on 26 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Janus Henderson Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Janus Henderson Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.1 up to $28.75. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

JHG.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 Janus Henderson Group's is 1.4201. This would suggest that Janus Henderson Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
