Is HBT Financial under- or over-valued?

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

HBT Financial's P/E ratio

HBT Financial'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, HBT Financial 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.

HBT Financial share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 29.85% of net profits

Recently HBT Financial has paid out, on average, around 29.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HBT Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HBT Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

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

HBT Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 15 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

HBT Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, HBT Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.6915 up to $19.99. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HBT.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 HBT Financial's is 1.4502. This would suggest that HBT Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
