Is Cullen/Frost Bankers stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Cullen/Frost Bankers stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cullen/Frost Bankers's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cullen/Frost Bankers's P/E ratio
Cullen/Frost Bankers's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Cullen/Frost Bankers shares trade at around 21x 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.
Cullen/Frost Bankers's PEG ratio
Cullen/Frost Bankers's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7721. 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 Cullen/Frost Bankers's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Recently Cullen/Frost Bankers has paid out, on average, around 48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cullen/Frost Bankers shareholders could enjoy a 2.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cullen/Frost Bankers's case, that would currently equate to about $3 per share.
While Cullen/Frost Bankers's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Cullen/Frost Bankers may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cullen/Frost Bankers shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cullen/Frost Bankers shares which in turn could have impacted Cullen/Frost Bankers's share price.
Cullen/Frost Bankers share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Cullen/Frost Bankers's shares have ranged in value from as little as $111.9206 up to $145.4176. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
