Is Citizens-and-Northern stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Citizens-and-Northern's P/E ratio

Citizens-and-Northern's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Citizens-and-Northern shares trade at around 13x 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.

Citizens-and-Northern share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 60.53% of net profits

Recently Citizens-and-Northern has paid out, on average, around 60.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Citizens-and-Northern shareholders could enjoy a 4.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Citizens-and-Northern's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 per share.

Citizens-and-Northern'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.

Citizens-and-Northern's most recent dividend payout was on 11 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Citizens-and-Northern's shares ever split?

Citizens-and-Northern's shares were split on a 101:100 basis on 27 December 2007. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 101 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Citizens-and-Northern shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Citizens-and-Northern shares which in turn could have impacted Citizens-and-Northern's share price.

Citizens-and-Northern share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Citizens-and-Northern's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.9466 up to $27.0486. 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 Citizens-and-Northern's is 0.3664. This would suggest that Citizens-and-Northern's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
