Is Helios Technologies under- or over-valued?

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

Helios Technologies's P/E ratio

Helios Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Helios Technologies shares trade at around 20x 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.

Helios Technologies's PEG ratio

Helios Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2795. 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 Helios Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Helios Technologies's EBITDA

Helios Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $206.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Helios Technologies's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Helios Technologies share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 8.53% of net profits

Recently Helios Technologies has paid out, on average, around 8.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Helios Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Helios Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.

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

Helios Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 20 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Helios Technologies's shares ever split?

Helios Technologies's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 18 July 2011. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Helios Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Helios Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Helios Technologies's share price.

Helios Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Helios Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $64.57 up to $114.6581. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HLIO.US volatility(beta: 1.17)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 Helios Technologies's is 1.1681. This would suggest that Helios Technologies'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).
