Is Chemung Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Chemung Financial's P/E ratio

Chemung 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 9x. In other words, Chemung Financial 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.

Chemung Financial share dividends

21%

Dividend payout ratio: 20.95% of net profits

Recently Chemung Financial has paid out, on average, around 20.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chemung Financial shareholders could enjoy a 2.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chemung Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.24 per share.

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

Chemung Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 2 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Chemung Financial's shares ever split?

Chemung Financial's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 June 1998. 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 Chemung Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chemung Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Chemung Financial's share price.

Chemung Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Chemung Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40.1698 up to $51.6. 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 Chemung Financial's is 0.1029. This would suggest that Chemung Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
