Is Huntington Ingalls Industries under- or over-valued?

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Huntington Ingalls Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Huntington Ingalls Industries shares can be evaluated.

Huntington Ingalls Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Huntington Ingalls Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Huntington Ingalls Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Huntington Ingalls Industries shares traded daily (recently around 213546.26865672). Huntington Ingalls Industries's SIR currently stands at 3.35. In other words for every 100,000 Huntington Ingalls Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3350 shares are currently held short.

However Huntington Ingalls Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Huntington Ingalls Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Huntington Ingalls Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Huntington Ingalls Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Huntington Ingalls Industries shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0182% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Huntington Ingalls Industries shares, roughly 18 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 Huntington Ingalls Industries.

Huntington Ingalls Industries share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 29.12% of net profits

Recently Huntington Ingalls Industries has paid out, on average, around 29.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Huntington Ingalls Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Huntington Ingalls Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $4.34 per share.

While Huntington Ingalls Industries's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Huntington Ingalls Industries may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Huntington Ingalls Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 10 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Huntington Ingalls Industries's shares ever split?

Huntington Ingalls Industries's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 4 December 2003. So if you had owned 2 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 Huntington Ingalls Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Huntington Ingalls Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Huntington Ingalls Industries's share price.

Huntington Ingalls Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Huntington Ingalls Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $133.9866 up to $224.13. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HII.US volatility(beta: 1.01)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 Huntington Ingalls Industries's is 1.0125. This would suggest that Huntington Ingalls Industries'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).
