Is Berkshire Hills Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Berkshire Hills Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Berkshire Hills Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Berkshire Hills Bancorp's P/E ratio
Berkshire Hills Bancorp'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, Berkshire Hills Bancorp 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.
Berkshire Hills Bancorp's PEG ratio
Berkshire Hills Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.74. 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 Berkshire Hills Bancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Recently Berkshire Hills Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 18.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Berkshire Hills Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Berkshire Hills Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
While Berkshire Hills Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Berkshire Hills Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.
Berkshire Hills Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 24 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Berkshire Hills Bancorp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Berkshire Hills Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.5221 up to $31.3752. 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 Berkshire Hills Bancorp's is 1.0567. This would suggest that Berkshire Hills Bancorp'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).
