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.

Hawaiian Electric Industries's P/E ratio

Hawaiian Electric Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Hawaiian Electric Industries shares trade at around 17x 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.

Hawaiian Electric Industries's PEG ratio

Hawaiian Electric Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.3783. 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 Hawaiian Electric Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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.

Hawaiian Electric Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hawaiian Electric Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37 up to $43.9972. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Hawaiian Electric Industries's is 0.3164. This would suggest that Hawaiian Electric Industries's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
