Is Hennessy Advisors under- or over-valued?

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

Hennessy Advisors's P/E ratio

Hennessy Advisors's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Hennessy Advisors shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.

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.

Hennessy Advisors's EBITDA

Hennessy Advisors's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $10.6 million.

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

Shorting Hennessy Advisors shares

There are currently 124,018 Hennessy Advisors shares held short by investors – that's known as Hennessy Advisors's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% down from 128,221 last month.

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

Hennessy Advisors's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Hennessy Advisors's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hennessy Advisors shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hennessy Advisors shares traded daily (recently around 8105.7516339869). Hennessy Advisors's SIR currently stands at 15.3. In other words for every 100,000 Hennessy Advisors shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15300 shares are currently held short.

However Hennessy Advisors's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hennessy Advisors shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hennessy Advisors shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hennessy Advisors's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hennessy Advisors shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0332% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hennessy Advisors shares, roughly 33 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 Hennessy Advisors.

Hennessy Advisors share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 50.17% of net profits

Recently Hennessy Advisors has paid out, on average, around 50.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hennessy Advisors shareholders could enjoy a 5.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hennessy Advisors's case, that would currently equate to about $0.552 per share.

Hennessy Advisors'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.

Hennessy Advisors's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Hennessy Advisors's shares ever split?

Hennessy Advisors's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 6 March 2017. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hennessy Advisors shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hennessy Advisors shares which in turn could have impacted Hennessy Advisors's share price.

Hennessy Advisors share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hennessy Advisors's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.486 up to $10.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HNNA.US volatility(beta: 1.05)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Hennessy Advisors's is 1.045. This would suggest that Hennessy Advisors's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
