Is Civista Bancshares stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Civista Bancshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Civista Bancshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Civista Bancshares's P/E ratio
Civista Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Civista Bancshares shares trade at around 8x 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.
Civista Bancshares's PEG ratio
Civista Bancshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.93. 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 Civista Bancshares's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dividend payout ratio: 22.67% of net profits
Recently Civista Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 22.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Civista Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Civista Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
While Civista Bancshares's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Civista Bancshares is investing more in its future growth.
Civista Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 22 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Civista Bancshares's shares ever split?
Civista Bancshares's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 4 June 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Civista Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Civista Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Civista Bancshares's share price.
Civista Bancshares share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Civista Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.8374 up to $25.4546. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
