Is Brookline Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Brookline Bancorp's P/E ratio

Brookline 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 9x. In other words, Brookline Bancorp 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.

Brookline Bancorp's PEG ratio

Brookline Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.38. 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 Brookline 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.

Brookline Bancorp share dividends

34%

Dividend payout ratio: 34.25% of net profits

Recently Brookline Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 34.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brookline Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brookline Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

Brookline Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 26 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Brookline Bancorp's shares ever split?

Brookline Bancorp's shares were split on a 2187:1000 basis on 9 July 2002. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2187 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Brookline Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 54.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Brookline Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Brookline Bancorp's share price.

Brookline Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Brookline Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.817 up to $17.4526. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BRKL.US volatility(beta: 0.67)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 Brookline Bancorp's is 0.6747. This would suggest that Brookline Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
