Is it a good time to buy Hilton Worldwide stock?

Is Hilton Worldwide under- or over-valued?

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

P/E ratio

Hilton Worldwide's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1057x. In other words, Hilton Worldwide shares trade at around 1057x 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.

However, Hilton Worldwide's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the lodging industry or those of similar companies.

PEG ratio

Hilton Worldwide's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2314. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued given the current rate of growth.

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

However, it's sensible to consider Hilton Worldwide's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

EBITDA

Hilton Worldwide's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $984 million (£0.0 million).

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

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.

Have Hilton Worldwide's shares ever split?

Hilton Worldwide's shares were split on a 1000:2052 basis on 4 January 2017. So if you had owned 2052 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hilton Worldwide shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 105.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hilton Worldwide shares which in turn could have impacted Hilton Worldwide's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hilton Worldwide's shares have ranged in value from as little as $98.57 up to $159.2059. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HLT.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 Hilton Worldwide's is 1.2701. This would suggest that Hilton Worldwide's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

To put Hilton Worldwide's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
