Is Capitol Federal Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Capitol Federal Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Capitol Federal Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Capitol Federal Financial's P/E ratio
Capitol Federal Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Capitol Federal Financial shares trade at around 14x 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.
Capitol Federal Financial's PEG ratio
Capitol Federal Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.66. 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 Capitol Federal Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Capitol Federal Financial share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 70.56% of net profits
Recently Capitol Federal Financial has paid out, on average, around 70.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Capitol Federal Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Capitol Federal Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.
Capitol Federal Financial's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Capitol Federal Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 18 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Capitol Federal Financial's shares ever split?
Capitol Federal Financial's shares were split on a 22637:1000 basis on 21 December 2010. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 22637 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Capitol Federal Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 95.6% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Capitol Federal Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Capitol Federal Financial's share price.
Capitol Federal Financial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Capitol Federal Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.6925 up to $12.0058. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Capitol Federal Financial's is 0.4103. This would suggest that Capitol Federal Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
