Is Comerica Incorporated under- or over-valued?

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

Comerica Incorporated's P/E ratio

Comerica Incorporated'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, Comerica Incorporated 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.

Comerica Incorporated's PEG ratio

Comerica Incorporated's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9466. 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 Comerica Incorporated's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Comerica Incorporated shares

There are currently 3.7 million Comerica Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as Comerica Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 23% up from 3.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Comerica Incorporated shares can be evaluated.

Comerica Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Comerica Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Comerica Incorporated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Comerica Incorporated shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Comerica Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 2.22. In other words for every 100,000 Comerica Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2220 shares are currently held short.

However Comerica Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Comerica Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Comerica Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Comerica Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Comerica Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0278% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Comerica Incorporated shares, roughly 28 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Comerica Incorporated.

Comerica Incorporated share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 35.42% of net profits

Recently Comerica Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 35.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.28% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Comerica Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 3.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Comerica Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $2.72 per share.

While Comerica Incorporated's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Comerica Incorporated may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Comerica Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Comerica Incorporated's shares ever split?

Comerica Incorporated's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 April 1998. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Comerica Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Comerica Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Comerica Incorporated's share price.

Comerica Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Comerica Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.3184 up to $85.35. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CMA.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Comerica Incorporated's is 1.5222. This would suggest that Comerica Incorporated's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
