Is Hawthorn Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

Hawthorn Bancshares's P/E ratio

Hawthorn Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Hawthorn Bancshares shares trade at around 8x 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.

Hawthorn Bancshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 17.19% of net profits

Recently Hawthorn Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 17.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hawthorn Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hawthorn Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.558 per share.

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

Hawthorn Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 31 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Hawthorn Bancshares's shares ever split?

Hawthorn Bancshares's shares were split on a 104:100 basis on 13 June 2018. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 104 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hawthorn Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hawthorn Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Hawthorn Bancshares's share price.

Hawthorn Bancshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hawthorn Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.9396 up to $26.12. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HWBK.US volatility(beta: 0.52)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 Hawthorn Bancshares's is 0.52. This would suggest that Hawthorn Bancshares's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
