Is Bankwell Financial Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Bankwell Financial Group's P/E ratio

Bankwell Financial Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Bankwell Financial Group shares trade at around 7x 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.

Bankwell Financial Group share dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.53% of net profits

Recently Bankwell Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 17.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bankwell Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bankwell Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.76 per share.

While Bankwell Financial Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bankwell Financial Group is investing more in its future growth.

Bankwell Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 24 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Bankwell Financial Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bankwell Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.3504 up to $36.5099. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BWFG.US volatility(beta: 0.74)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 Bankwell Financial Group's is 0.7407. This would suggest that Bankwell Financial Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
