Valuing HNI Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of HNI Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
HNI Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, HNI Corporation shares trade at around 19x 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.
HNI Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.94. 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 HNI Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
HNI Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$214.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a HNI Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.0 million HNI Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as HNI Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18.6% down from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting HNI Corporation shares can be evaluated.
HNI Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HNI Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HNI Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 239670.11764706). HNI Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.25. In other words for every 100,000 HNI Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4250 shares are currently held short.
However HNI Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HNI Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable HNI Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HNI Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HNI Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0322% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HNI Corporation shares, roughly 32 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 HNI Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 46.74% of net profits
Recently HNI Corporation has paid out, on average, around 46.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HNI Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HNI Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.22 per share.
While HNI Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that HNI Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
HNI Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
HNI Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 March 1998. 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 HNI Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HNI Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted HNI Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, HNI Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.605 up to $41.01. 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 HNI Corporation's is 1.1059. This would suggest that HNI Corporation'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).
