Is Hawkins under- or over-valued?

Hawkins's P/E ratio
Hawkins'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, Hawkins 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.

Shorting Hawkins shares
There are currently 178,619 Hawkins shares held short by investors – that's known as Hawkins's "short interest". This figure is 24% up from 144,027 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hawkins shares can be evaluated.
Hawkins's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Hawkins's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hawkins shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hawkins shares traded daily (recently around 61592.75862069). Hawkins's SIR currently stands at 2.9. In other words for every 100,000 Hawkins shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2900 shares are currently held short.
However Hawkins's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hawkins shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hawkins shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hawkins's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hawkins shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0094% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hawkins shares, roughly 9 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Hawkins.

Hawkins share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 20.49% of net profits
Recently Hawkins has paid out, on average, around 20.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hawkins shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hawkins's case, that would currently equate to about $0.471 per share.
While Hawkins's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Hawkins is investing more in its future growth.
Hawkins's most recent dividend payout was on 17 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Hawkins's shares ever split?
Hawkins's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 March 2021. 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 Hawkins shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hawkins shares which in turn could have impacted Hawkins's share price.
Hawkins share price volatility
