Is Horizon Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Horizon Bancorp's P/E ratio

Horizon Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Horizon Bancorp shares trade at around 9x 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 Horizon Bancorp shares

There are currently 247,350 Horizon Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Horizon Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 26.9% down from 338,594 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Horizon Bancorp shares can be evaluated.

Horizon Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Horizon Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Horizon Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Horizon Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 104367.08860759). Horizon Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.37. In other words for every 100,000 Horizon Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2370 shares are currently held short.

However Horizon Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Horizon Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Horizon Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Horizon Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Horizon Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0066% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Horizon Bancorp shares, roughly 7 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 Horizon Bancorp.

Horizon Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 27.6% of net profits

Recently Horizon Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 27.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Horizon Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Horizon Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

While Horizon Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Horizon Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Horizon Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 21 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Horizon Bancorp's shares ever split?

Horizon Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 17 June 2018. 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 Horizon Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Horizon Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Horizon Bancorp's share price.

Horizon Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Horizon Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.4059 up to $19.7199. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HBNC.US volatility(beta: 1.24)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 Horizon Bancorp's is 1.2381. This would suggest that Horizon Bancorp'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).
