Is Hancock Whitney Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Hancock Whitney Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hancock Whitney Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hancock Whitney Corporation's P/E ratio
Hancock Whitney 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 10x. In other words, Hancock Whitney Corporation 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.

Hancock Whitney Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 16% of net profits
Recently Hancock Whitney Corporation has paid out, on average, around 16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hancock Whitney Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hancock Whitney Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.
While Hancock Whitney Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Hancock Whitney Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Hancock Whitney Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Hancock Whitney Corporation's shares ever split?
Hancock Whitney Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 March 2004. 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 Hancock Whitney Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hancock Whitney Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Hancock Whitney Corporation's share price.
Hancock Whitney Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Hancock Whitney Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.8956 up to $59.82. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Hancock Whitney Corporation's is 1.6011. This would suggest that Hancock Whitney Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
