Valuing Houlihan Lokey stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Houlihan Lokey's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Houlihan Lokey's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Houlihan Lokey shares trade at around 22x 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.
Houlihan Lokey's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.54. 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 Houlihan Lokey's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.1 million Houlihan Lokey shares held short by investors – that's known as Houlihan Lokey's "short interest". This figure is 18.6% up from 948,693 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Houlihan Lokey shares can be evaluated.
Houlihan Lokey's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Houlihan Lokey shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Houlihan Lokey shares traded daily (recently around 392014.9825784). Houlihan Lokey's SIR currently stands at 2.87. In other words for every 100,000 Houlihan Lokey shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2870 shares are currently held short.
However Houlihan Lokey's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Houlihan Lokey shares, or, against the total number of tradable Houlihan Lokey shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Houlihan Lokey's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Houlihan Lokey shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0221% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Houlihan Lokey shares, roughly 22 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 Houlihan Lokey.

Dividend payout ratio: 40.65% of net profits
Recently Houlihan Lokey has paid out, on average, around 40.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Houlihan Lokey shareholders could enjoy a 2.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Houlihan Lokey's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.
While Houlihan Lokey's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Houlihan Lokey may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Houlihan Lokey's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Houlihan Lokey's shares have ranged in value from as little as $42.86 up to $64.94. 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 Houlihan Lokey's is 0.6862. This would suggest that Houlihan Lokey's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
