Is Alerus Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Alerus Financial's P/E ratio

Alerus Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Alerus Financial shares trade at around 9x 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.

Alerus Financial share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 26.67% of net profits

Recently Alerus Financial has paid out, on average, around 26.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alerus Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alerus Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.66 per share.

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

Alerus Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 13 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Alerus Financial's shares ever split?

Alerus Financial's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 14 September 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Alerus Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alerus Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Alerus Financial's share price.

Alerus Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Alerus Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.2 up to $37.5976. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALRS.US volatility(beta: 0.72)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Alerus Financial's is 0.7191. This would suggest that Alerus Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
