Is Herc stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Herc stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Herc's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Herc's P/E ratio
Herc's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Herc shares trade at around 14x 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.
Herc's PEG ratio
Herc's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4833. 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 Herc's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Herc's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $582.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Herc's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Herc share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22.33% of net profits
Recently Herc has paid out, on average, around 22.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Herc shareholders could enjoy a 1.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Herc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.575 per share.
While Herc's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Herc is investing more in its future growth.
Herc's most recent dividend payout was on 26 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Herc's shares ever split?
Herc's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 30 June 2016. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Herc shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Herc shares which in turn could have impacted Herc's share price.
Herc share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Herc's shares have ranged in value from as little as $82.6864 up to $171.8748. 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 Herc's is 2.4862. This would suggest that Herc's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
