Is Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's P/E ratio

Atlantic Union Bankshares 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 16x. In other words, Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares trade at around 16x 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.

Shorting Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares

There are currently 911,366 Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 10.7% up from 823,442 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 319777.54385965). Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.85. In other words for every 100,000 Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2850 shares are currently held short.

However Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0117% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares, roughly 12 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 Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation.

Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation share dividends

46%

Dividend payout ratio: 45.6% of net profits

Recently Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation has paid out, on average, around 45.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.96 per share.

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

Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 25 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's shares ever split?

Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 October 2006. 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 Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's share price.

Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.8672 up to $41.8448. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AUB.US volatility(beta: 1.4)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 Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's is 1.4049. This would suggest that Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
