Is Alerus Financial Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Alerus Financial Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Alerus Financial Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Alerus Financial Corporation's P/E ratio
Alerus Financial 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 10x. In other words, Alerus Financial Corporation shares trade at around 10x 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 Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22.26% of net profits
Recently Alerus Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 22.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.22% 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 Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alerus Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.62 per share.
While Alerus Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Alerus Financial Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Alerus Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 13 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Alerus Financial Corporation's shares ever split?
Alerus Financial Corporation'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 Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alerus Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Alerus Financial Corporation's share price.
Alerus Financial Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Alerus Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.563 up to $38.0952. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Alerus Financial Corporation's is 0.7491. This would suggest that Alerus Financial Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
