Is Honda Motor CoLtd under- or over-valued?

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

Honda Motor CoLtd's P/E ratio

Honda Motor CoLtd'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, Honda Motor CoLtd 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.

Honda Motor CoLtd's PEG ratio

Honda Motor CoLtd's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.0531. 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 Honda Motor CoLtd's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Honda Motor CoLtd's EBITDA

Honda Motor CoLtd's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1,056.1 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Honda Motor CoLtd's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Honda Motor CoLtd shares

There are currently 1.3 million Honda Motor CoLtd shares held short by investors – that's known as Honda Motor CoLtd's "short interest". This figure is 44.3% down from 2.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Honda Motor CoLtd shares can be evaluated.

Honda Motor CoLtd's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Honda Motor CoLtd's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Honda Motor CoLtd shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Honda Motor CoLtd shares traded daily (recently around 917276.8707483). Honda Motor CoLtd's SIR currently stands at 1.47. In other words for every 100,000 Honda Motor CoLtd shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1470 shares are currently held short.

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

Honda Motor CoLtd share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 12.93% of net profits

Recently Honda Motor CoLtd has paid out, on average, around 12.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Honda Motor CoLtd shareholders could enjoy a 2.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Honda Motor CoLtd's case, that would currently equate to about $168 per share.

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

Honda Motor CoLtd's most recent dividend payout was on 9 June 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Honda Motor CoLtd's shares ever split?

Honda Motor CoLtd's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 9 January 2002. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Honda Motor CoLtd shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Honda Motor CoLtd shares which in turn could have impacted Honda Motor CoLtd's share price.

Honda Motor CoLtd share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Honda Motor CoLtd's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.2762 up to $31.92. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HMC.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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Honda Motor CoLtd's is 1.0471. This would suggest that Honda Motor CoLtd'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).
