Is Commerce Bancshares stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Commerce Bancshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Commerce Bancshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Commerce Bancshares's P/E ratio
Commerce 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 18x. In other words, Commerce Bancshares shares trade at around 18x 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.
Commerce Bancshares's PEG ratio
Commerce Bancshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.58. 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 Commerce 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.

Commerce Bancshares share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 27.33% of net profits
Recently Commerce Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 27.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Commerce Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Commerce Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $1.03 per share.
While Commerce Bancshares's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Commerce Bancshares may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Commerce Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 21 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Commerce Bancshares's shares ever split?
Commerce Bancshares's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 30 November 2021. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Commerce Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Commerce Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Commerce Bancshares's share price.
Commerce Bancshares share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Commerce Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $62.5538 up to $73.8561. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
