Is Hillenbrand under- or over-valued?

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

Hillenbrand's P/E ratio

Hillenbrand's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Hillenbrand shares trade at around 15x 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.

Hillenbrand's PEG ratio

Hillenbrand's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0969. 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 Hillenbrand's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Hillenbrand's EBITDA

Hillenbrand's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $539.7 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Hillenbrand's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Hillenbrand share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.76% of net profits

Recently Hillenbrand has paid out, on average, around 22.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hillenbrand shareholders could enjoy a 1.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hillenbrand's case, that would currently equate to about $0.86 per share.

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

Hillenbrand's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Hillenbrand's shares ever split?

Hillenbrand's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 31 October 2012. So if you had owned 5 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 Hillenbrand shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hillenbrand shares which in turn could have impacted Hillenbrand's share price.

Hillenbrand share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Hillenbrand's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.9877 up to $54.15. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HI.US volatility(beta: 1.53)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 Hillenbrand's is 1.5286. This would suggest that Hillenbrand's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
