Is First Hawaiian stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

First Hawaiian's P/E ratio

First Hawaiian's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, First Hawaiian shares trade at around 14x 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.

First Hawaiian's PEG ratio

First Hawaiian's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.05. 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 First Hawaiian's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

First Hawaiian share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 56.22% of net profits

Recently First Hawaiian has paid out, on average, around 56.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Hawaiian shareholders could enjoy a 4.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Hawaiian's case, that would currently equate to about $1.04 per share.

First Hawaiian'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.

First Hawaiian's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

First Hawaiian share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Hawaiian's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.0091 up to $30.2686. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FHB.US volatility(beta: 1.12)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 First Hawaiian's is 1.1179. This would suggest that First Hawaiian's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
