Is Heartland Financial USA stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Heartland Financial USA's P/E ratio

Heartland Financial USA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Heartland Financial USA shares trade at around 10x 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.

Heartland Financial USA's PEG ratio

Heartland Financial USA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.66. 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 Heartland Financial USA's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Heartland Financial USA share dividends

24%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.84% of net profits

Recently Heartland Financial USA has paid out, on average, around 23.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Heartland Financial USA shareholders could enjoy a 2.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Heartland Financial USA's case, that would currently equate to about $1.06 per share.

While Heartland Financial USA's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Heartland Financial USA is investing more in its future growth.

Heartland Financial USA's most recent dividend payout was on 25 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Heartland Financial USA's shares ever split?

Heartland Financial USA's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 29 December 2003. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Heartland Financial USA shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Heartland Financial USA shares which in turn could have impacted Heartland Financial USA's share price.

Heartland Financial USA share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Heartland Financial USA's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.0396 up to $53.042. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HTLF.US volatility(beta: 1.11)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 Heartland Financial USA's is 1.1103. This would suggest that Heartland Financial USA'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).
