Is HNI Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing HNI Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of HNI Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
HNI Corporation's P/E ratio
HNI 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 25x. In other words, HNI Corporation shares trade at around 25x 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 Corporation's PEG ratio
HNI Corporation'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 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.
HNI Corporation's EBITDA
HNI Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $174.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a HNI Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

HNI Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 66.76% of net profits
Recently HNI Corporation has paid out, on average, around 66.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HNI Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HNI Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.23 per share.
HNI Corporation'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 Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have HNI Corporation's shares ever split?
HNI Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 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 Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HNI Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted HNI Corporation's share price.
HNI Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, HNI Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.2385 up to $46.2019. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while HNI Corporation's is 0.96. This would suggest that HNI Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
