Valuing Associated Banc-Corp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Associated Banc-Corp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Associated Banc-Corp'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, Associated Banc-Corp 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.
Associated Banc-Corp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.27. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Associated Banc-Corp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.1 million Associated Banc-Corp shares held short by investors – that's known as Associated Banc-Corp's "short interest". This figure is 25.8% down from 2.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Associated Banc-Corp shares can be evaluated.
Associated Banc-Corp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Associated Banc-Corp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Associated Banc-Corp shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Associated Banc-Corp's SIR currently stands at 2.06. In other words for every 100,000 Associated Banc-Corp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2060 shares are currently held short.
However Associated Banc-Corp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Associated Banc-Corp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Associated Banc-Corp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Associated Banc-Corp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Associated Banc-Corp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.014% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Associated Banc-Corp shares, roughly 14 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Associated Banc-Corp.

Dividend payout ratio: 58.54% of net profits
Recently Associated Banc-Corp has paid out, on average, around 58.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Associated Banc-Corp shareholders could enjoy a 4.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Associated Banc-Corp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.
Associated Banc-Corp'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.
Associated Banc-Corp's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Associated Banc-Corp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 13 May 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 Associated Banc-Corp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Associated Banc-Corp shares which in turn could have impacted Associated Banc-Corp's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Associated Banc-Corp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.8632 up to $21.1604. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Associated Banc-Corp's is 1.2168. This would suggest that Associated Banc-Corp'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).
