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

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.

Hawaiian Electric Industries share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 65.26% of net profits
Recently Hawaiian Electric Industries has paid out, on average, around 65.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hawaiian Electric Industries shareholders could enjoy a 3.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hawaiian Electric Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $1.38 per share.
Hawaiian Electric Industries'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.
Hawaiian Electric Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Hawaiian Electric Industries's shares ever split?
Hawaiian Electric Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 June 2004. 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 Hawaiian Electric Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hawaiian Electric Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Hawaiian Electric Industries's share price.
