Is RCI Hospitality Holdings 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

RCI Hospitality Holdings's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, RCI Hospitality Holdings shares trade at around 15x 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.

PEG ratio

RCI Hospitality Holdings's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.1828. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value 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 RCI Hospitality Holdings'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 currently 317,142 RCI Hospitality Holdings shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 24.1% down from 418,057 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting RCI Hospitality Holdings shares can be evaluated.

Short interest ratio (SIR)

RCI Hospitality Holdings's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RCI Hospitality Holdings shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RCI Hospitality Holdings shares traded daily (recently around 89841.926345609). RCI Hospitality Holdings's SIR currently stands at 3.53. In other words for every 100,000 RCI Hospitality Holdings shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3530 shares are currently held short.

However RCI Hospitality Holdings's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RCI Hospitality Holdings shares, or, against the total number of tradable RCI Hospitality Holdings shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RCI Hospitality Holdings's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RCI Hospitality Holdings shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0383% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RCI Hospitality Holdings shares, roughly 38 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 RCI Hospitality Holdings.

RCI Hospitality Holdings share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 36.59% of net profits

Recently RCI Hospitality Holdings has paid out, on average, around 36.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 0.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RCI Hospitality Holdings's case, that would currently equate to about $0.15 per share.

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

RCI Hospitality Holdings's most recent dividend payout was on 25 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have RCI Hospitality Holdings's shares ever split?

RCI Hospitality Holdings's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 15 March 1999. 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 RCI Hospitality Holdings shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for RCI Hospitality Holdings shares which in turn could have impacted RCI Hospitality Holdings's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, RCI Hospitality Holdings's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.7544 up to $73.36. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RICK.US volatility(beta: 2.12)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 RCI Hospitality Holdings's is 2.118. This would suggest that RCI Hospitality Holdings's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
