Is Chemung Financial Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Chemung Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

Chemung Financial Corporation'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 Corporation 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 Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.16% of net profits

Recently Chemung Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 22.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.69% 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 Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chemung Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.14 per share.

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

Chemung Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 2 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Chemung Financial Corporation's shares ever split?

Chemung Financial Corporation'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 Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chemung Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Chemung Financial Corporation's share price.

Chemung Financial Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Chemung Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.4431 up to $49.1631. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
