Is Central Valley Community Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Central Valley Community Bancorp's P/E ratio

Central Valley Community 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, Central Valley Community 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.

Central Valley Community Bancorp's PEG ratio

Central Valley Community Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2. 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 Central Valley Community 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.

Central Valley Community Bancorp share dividends

21%

Dividend payout ratio: 21.15% of net profits

Recently Central Valley Community Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 21.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Central Valley Community Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Central Valley Community Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

While Central Valley Community Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Central Valley Community Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.

Central Valley Community Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 23 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Central Valley Community Bancorp's shares ever split?

Central Valley Community Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 October 2005. 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 Central Valley Community Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Central Valley Community Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Central Valley Community Bancorp's share price.

Central Valley Community Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Central Valley Community Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.9674 up to $24.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
