The downside deviation is down to 2.42 as of today. Heartland Financial USA currently demonstrates below-verage downside deviation. It has Information Ratio of 0.12 and Jensen Alpha of 0.52. However, we do advice investors to further question Heartland Financial USA expected returns to ensure all indicators are consistent with the current outlook about its relatively low value at risk.

Although some other firms under the banks?regional industry are still a bit expensive, Heartland Financial may offer a potential longer-term growth to shareholders. On the whole, as of the 24th of January 2021, we see that Heartland Financial barely shadows the market. The firm is overvalued with below average chance of distress within the next 24 months. Our present 30 days buy-sell recommendation on the firm is Strong Hold.
