Is Huazhu Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Huazhu Group's P/E ratio

Huazhu Group'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, Huazhu Group 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.

Huazhu Group's PEG ratio

Huazhu Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 46.26. 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 Huazhu Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Huazhu Group's EBITDA

Huazhu Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.4 billion.

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

Huazhu Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 7.77% of net profits

Recently Huazhu Group has paid out, on average, around 7.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Huazhu Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Huazhu Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

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

Huazhu Group's most recent dividend payout was on 16 January 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 December 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Huazhu Group's shares ever split?

Huazhu Group's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 24 May 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Huazhu Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Huazhu Group shares which in turn could have impacted Huazhu Group's share price.

Huazhu Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Huazhu Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.2 up to $47.5291. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HTHT.US volatility(beta: 0.75)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Huazhu Group's is 0.75. This would suggest that Huazhu Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
