Valuing BancorpSouth Bank stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BancorpSouth Bank's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BancorpSouth Bank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, BancorpSouth Bank shares trade at around 11x 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.
BancorpSouth Bank's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.8. 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 BancorpSouth Bank'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 9.1 million BancorpSouth Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as BancorpSouth Bank's "short interest". This figure is 15.1% up from 7.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BancorpSouth Bank shares can be evaluated.
BancorpSouth Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BancorpSouth Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BancorpSouth Bank shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). BancorpSouth Bank's SIR currently stands at 8.18. In other words for every 100,000 BancorpSouth Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8180 shares are currently held short.
However BancorpSouth Bank's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BancorpSouth Bank shares, or, against the total number of tradable BancorpSouth Bank shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BancorpSouth Bank's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BancorpSouth Bank shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0852% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BancorpSouth Bank shares, roughly 85 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against BancorpSouth Bank.

Dividend payout ratio: 25.93% of net profits
Recently BancorpSouth Bank has paid out, on average, around 25.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BancorpSouth Bank shareholders could enjoy a 2.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BancorpSouth Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.755 per share.
While BancorpSouth Bank's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that BancorpSouth Bank may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
BancorpSouth Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
BancorpSouth Bank's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 May 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BancorpSouth Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BancorpSouth Bank shares which in turn could have impacted BancorpSouth Bank's share price.
Over the last 12 months, BancorpSouth Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.1596 up to $35.1235. 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 BancorpSouth Bank's is 1.2111. This would suggest that BancorpSouth Bank'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).
