Janus Henderson Group PLC JHG Stock Fundamentals Broken Down
JHG stock is a bit unlike most of the stocks I review on this section of the site, with a P/E (ttm) of 74, but it does sport a P/B of 1.16 & a Dividend Yield of 5.11%.
This Dividend looks relatively safe, as their Payout Ratio is 66.2%.
JHG’s Market Cap is $5.09B, and their Total Cash (mrq) is $1.73B.
While their Beta is 1.42, the stock itself has only been trading for a few years.
One of the most interesting things about JHG’s stock, is that their Debt/Equity (ttm) is only 8.53, which likely is why they have a 65.2% % Institutional Ownership.
Their Technical Rating is 166.2, which is also a great sign.

Janus Henderson Group PLC JHG’s Stock Performance Vs. The S&P 500 & NASDAQ Indices
The historic data I referenced began tracking JHG’s performance on 5/30/2017.
One issue that investors may have is that since their inception, the stock itself has declined 6.5%.
However, when you factor in the dividends that investors would’ve collected, they have actually grown by 9.58%.
The S&P 500 has grown by 27.89% in that time period, excluding dividends collected.
JHG’s stock has also underperformed the NASDAQ in that time period, as the NASDAQ Index has grown 56.4%, excluding dividends.
To some investors this may be troubling, but the 5%+ yield should be able to win them over, using JHG as part of a balanced portfolio.

Moody’s rates JHG’s credit as Baa2, a medium grade rating, meaning that JHG should be able to repay any and all short term debt relatively easily.
This is important, particularly in times like early 2020 where the market has been less forgiving to stocks with higher amounts of debt.
Combined with their Debt/Equity (mrq) this is a sign that investors like to see.
Tying It All Together
Janus Henderson Group’s stock has shown signals that appeal to both short & mid-term traders, as well as for longer term investors.
Their 5%+ Dividend Yield is especially attractive in times of economic uncertainty caused by the pandemic, and their Debt/Equity (mrq) is also highly appealing.
JHG stock’s technical performance should appeal to traders as well.
