Is Heartland Group Holdings under- or over-valued?
Valuing Heartland Group Holdings stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Heartland Group Holdings 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Heartland Group Holdings 's P/E ratio
Heartland Group Holdings '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, Heartland Group Holdings shares trade at around 12x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Heartland Group Holdings share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 70.93% of net profits
Recently Heartland Group Holdings has paid out, on average, around 70.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Heartland Group Holdings shareholders could enjoy a 7.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Heartland Group Holdings 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.125 per share.
Heartland Group Holdings '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.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Heartland Group Holdings share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Heartland Group Holdings 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.6 up to $2.3816. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Heartland Group Holdings 's is 1.0981. This would suggest that Heartland Group Holdings 's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
