Valuing Huaneng Power International stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Huaneng Power International's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Huaneng Power International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 43x. In other words, Huaneng Power International shares trade at around 43x 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.
Huaneng Power International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4255. 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 Huaneng Power International'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 12,832 Huaneng Power International shares held short by investors – that's known as Huaneng Power International's "short interest". This figure is 41.4% up from 9,077 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Huaneng Power International shares can be evaluated.
Huaneng Power International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Huaneng Power International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Huaneng Power International shares traded daily (recently around 17578.082191781). Huaneng Power International's SIR currently stands at 0.73. In other words for every 100,000 Huaneng Power International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 730 shares are currently held short.
However Huaneng Power International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Huaneng Power International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Huaneng Power International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Huaneng Power International's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Huaneng Power International shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Huaneng Power International 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 Huaneng Power International.

Dividend payout ratio: 1072.14% of net profits
Recently Huaneng Power International has paid out, on average, around 1072.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Huaneng Power International shareholders could enjoy a 5.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Huaneng Power International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.78 per share.
Huaneng Power International'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.
Huaneng Power International's most recent dividend payout was on 10 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 July 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Huaneng Power International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 May 2004. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Huaneng Power International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Huaneng Power International shares which in turn could have impacted Huaneng Power International's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Huaneng Power International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.0982 up to $20.1741. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
