On this page we presented the HQI PE Ratio History information for HireQuest' stock.
The average HQI PE ratio history based on using the annualized quarterly earnings result at each measurement period (for the "E" in the PE calculation; and the closing price on earnings date as the "P") is 22.5. Meanwhile, using the trailing twelve month (TTM) quarterly earnings result as our method of calculation the "E" value at each measurement period, the average HQI PE ratio history based on this TTM earnings result method is 27.1. Note: any PE calculations involving negative earnings were discarded as not meaningful.
Let's now compare this HQI PE ratio history result, against the recent PE: when this page was posted on 11/4/2022, the most recent closing price for HQI had been 14.91, and the most recent quarterly earnings result, annualized, was 1.2. Meanwhile, the most recent TTM earnings summed to 1.09. From these numbers, we calculate the recent HQI PE on 11/4/2022 based on annualized quarterly EPS was 12.4. Based on HQI's history, that recent PE is low relative to the historical average, with the recent PE 44.9% lower than the historical average PE across our data set for HireQuest. Looking at the recent HQI PE on 11/4/2022 based on TTM EPS, we calculate the ratio at 13.7. Based on HQI's history, that recent PE is low relative to the historical average, with the recent PE 49.4% lower than the average PE across our HireQuest data set with TTM EPS used in the calculation at each period.
Another interesting HQI PE ratio history calculation we look at is to take the median earnings per share of the last four quarters for HQI, and then annualize the resulting value... with that annualized number then being used in the PE calculation. To walk through this math for HQI, we start with the past four EPS numbers and we first sort them from lowest to highest: 0.16, 0.26, 0.30, and 0.37. We then toss out the highest and lowest result, and then take the average of those two middle numbers — 0.26 and 0.30 — which gives us the median of 0.28. Basically the way to think about this 0.28 number is this: for the trailing four earnings reports, 0.28 marks the "middle ground" number where HQI has reported a value higher than 0.28 half the time, and has reported a value lower than 0.28 half the time. Annualizing that median value then gets us to 1.12/share, which we use as the denominator in our next PE calculation. With 14.91 as the numerator (as of 11/4/2022), the calculation is then 14.91 / 1.12 = 13.3 as the HQI PE ratio as of 11/4/2022, based on that annualized median value we calculated.
