Is Bank of Hawaii Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Bank of Hawaii Corporation's P/E ratio

Bank of Hawaii Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares trade at around 21x 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.

Bank of Hawaii Corporation's PEG ratio

Bank of Hawaii Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.09. 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 Bank of Hawaii Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares

There are currently 1.4 million Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Bank of Hawaii Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% down from 1.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Bank of Hawaii Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bank of Hawaii Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 236446.69966997). Bank of Hawaii Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.06. In other words for every 100,000 Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6060 shares are currently held short.

However Bank of Hawaii Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bank of Hawaii Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0362% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares, roughly 36 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Bank of Hawaii Corporation.

Bank of Hawaii Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 60.82% of net profits

Recently Bank of Hawaii Corporation has paid out, on average, around 60.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bank of Hawaii Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bank of Hawaii Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.68 per share.

Bank of Hawaii Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Bank of Hawaii Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 13 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Bank of Hawaii Corporation's shares ever split?

Bank of Hawaii Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 December 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bank of Hawaii Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Bank of Hawaii Corporation's share price.

Bank of Hawaii Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bank of Hawaii Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $47.6508 up to $98.3564. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BOH.US volatility(beta: 1.25)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 Bank of Hawaii Corporation's is 1.2535. This would suggest that Bank of Hawaii Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
