Husky Energy's P/E ratio

Husky Energy's PEG ratio

Husky Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.54. 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 Husky Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Husky Energy shares

There are currently 7.6 million Husky Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Husky Energy's "short interest". This figure is 30.1% down from 10.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Husky Energy shares can be evaluated.

Husky Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Husky Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Husky Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Husky Energy shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Husky Energy's SIR currently stands at 3.09. In other words for every 100,000 Husky Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3090 shares are currently held short.

However Husky Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Husky Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Husky Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Husky Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Husky Energy shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Husky Energy 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 Husky Energy.

Husky Energy's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Husky Energy.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Husky Energy's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 49.42

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Husky Energy's overall score of 49.42 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 95th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Husky Energy is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Husky Energy's environmental score

Environmental score: 26.81/100

Husky Energy's environmental score of 26.81 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Husky Energy is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Husky Energy's social score

Social score: 19.42/100

Husky Energy's social score of 19.42 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Husky Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Husky Energy's governance score

Governance score: 14.19/100

Husky Energy's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Husky Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Husky Energy's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Husky Energy scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Husky Energy hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Husky Energy share dividends

We're not expecting Husky Energy to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Husky Energy's shares ever split?

Husky Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 July 2007. 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 Husky Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Husky Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Husky Energy's share price.

Husky Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Husky Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$3.0331 up to C$6.91. 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 (TO average) beta is 1, while Husky Energy's is 2.5228. This would suggest that Husky Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
