Is AmeriServ Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing AmeriServ Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AmeriServ Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AmeriServ Financial's P/E ratio
AmeriServ 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, AmeriServ 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.

AmeriServ Financial share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 24.54% of net profits
Recently AmeriServ Financial has paid out, on average, around 24.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AmeriServ Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AmeriServ Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.105 per share.
While AmeriServ Financial's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AmeriServ Financial is investing more in its future growth.
AmeriServ Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 21 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have AmeriServ Financial's shares ever split?
AmeriServ Financial's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 2 August 1998. 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 AmeriServ Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AmeriServ Financial shares which in turn could have impacted AmeriServ Financial's share price.
AmeriServ Financial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, AmeriServ Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.6048 up to $4.4524. 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 AmeriServ Financial's is 0.6848. This would suggest that AmeriServ Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
