Is HNI under- or over-valued?

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

HNI's P/E ratio

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

HNI's PEG ratio

HNI's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.94. 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 HNI's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

HNI's EBITDA

HNI's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $163 million.

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

HNI share dividends

81%

Dividend payout ratio: 81.41% of net profits

Recently HNI has paid out, on average, around 81.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HNI shareholders could enjoy a 4.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HNI's case, that would currently equate to about $1.26 per share.

HNI's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

HNI's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have HNI's shares ever split?

HNI's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 March 1998. 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 HNI shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HNI shares which in turn could have impacted HNI's share price.

HNI share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, HNI's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.221 up to $42.9136. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HNI.US volatility(beta: 0.93)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 HNI's is 0.9275. This would suggest that HNI's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
