Is Hawkins stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

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 18x. In other words, Hawkins shares trade at around 18x 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.

Hawkins's EBITDA

Hawkins's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $88.6 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Hawkins's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Hawkins share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.3% of net profits

Recently Hawkins has paid out, on average, around 22.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.32% 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 1.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hawkins's case, that would currently equate to about $0.491 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 18 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 November 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

Over the last 12 months, Hawkins's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.1898 up to $40.97. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HWKN.US volatility(beta: 0.89)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 Hawkins's is 0.8905. This would suggest that Hawkins's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
