Is H-and-R Block stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

H-and-R Block's P/E ratio

H-and-R Block's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, H-and-R Block shares trade at around 13x 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.

H-and-R Block's PEG ratio

H-and-R Block's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8462. 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 H-and-R Block's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

H-and-R Block's EBITDA

H-and-R Block's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $850.6 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a H-and-R Block's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

H-and-R Block share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 31.73% of net profits

Recently H-and-R Block has paid out, on average, around 31.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), H-and-R Block shareholders could enjoy a 3.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In H-and-R Block's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.

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

H-and-R Block's most recent dividend payout was on 2 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have H-and-R Block's shares ever split?

H-and-R Block's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 August 2005. 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 H-and-R Block shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for H-and-R Block shares which in turn could have impacted H-and-R Block's share price.

H-and-R Block share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, H-and-R Block's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.3143 up to $48.1101. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HRB.US volatility(beta: 0.68)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while H-and-R Block's is 0.6767. This would suggest that H-and-R Block's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
