Is HollyFrontier Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

HollyFrontier Corporation's P/E ratio

HollyFrontier 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 12x. In other words, HollyFrontier Corporation 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.

HollyFrontier Corporation's PEG ratio

HollyFrontier Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 42.2403. 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 HollyFrontier 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.

HollyFrontier Corporation's EBITDA

HollyFrontier Corporation's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like HollyFrontier Corporation.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

HollyFrontier Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 34.84

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and HollyFrontier Corporation's overall score of 34.84 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 74th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like HollyFrontier Corporation is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

HollyFrontier Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 21.32/100

HollyFrontier Corporation's environmental score of 21.32 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that HollyFrontier Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

HollyFrontier Corporation's social score

Social score: 8.73/100

HollyFrontier Corporation's social score of 8.73 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that HollyFrontier Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

HollyFrontier Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 2.28/100

HollyFrontier Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that HollyFrontier Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

HollyFrontier Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. HollyFrontier Corporation scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that HollyFrontier Corporation has managed to keep its nose clean.

HollyFrontier Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 39.77% of net profits

Recently HollyFrontier Corporation has paid out, on average, around 39.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HollyFrontier Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 4.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HollyFrontier Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.

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

HollyFrontier Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 10 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have HollyFrontier Corporation's shares ever split?

HollyFrontier Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 September 2011. 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 HollyFrontier Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HollyFrontier Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted HollyFrontier Corporation's share price.

HollyFrontier Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, HollyFrontier Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.1404 up to $42.39. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HFC.US volatility(beta: 1.65)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 HollyFrontier Corporation's is 1.6477. This would suggest that HollyFrontier Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
