Is Hanmi Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Hanmi Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

Hanmi Financial 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, Hanmi Financial 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.

Hanmi Financial Corporation's PEG ratio

Hanmi Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.14. 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 Hanmi Financial 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.

Hanmi Financial Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 20.85% of net profits

Recently Hanmi Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 20.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hanmi Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hanmi Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.42 per share.

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

Hanmi Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 23 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Hanmi Financial Corporation's shares ever split?

Hanmi Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 1:8 basis on 18 December 2011. So if you had owned 8 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hanmi Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 700% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hanmi Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Hanmi Financial Corporation's share price.

Hanmi Financial Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hanmi Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.674 up to $26.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HAFC.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 Hanmi Financial Corporation's is 1.2413. This would suggest that Hanmi Financial 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).
