Is CVB Financial under- or over-valued?

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

CVB Financial's P/E ratio

CVB Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, CVB Financial shares trade at around 15x 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.

CVB Financial's PEG ratio

CVB Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.22. 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 CVB Financial'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 CVB Financial shares

There are currently 3.2 million CVB Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as CVB Financial's "short interest". This figure is 7.8% up from 3.0 million last month.

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

CVB Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CVB Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CVB Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CVB Financial shares traded daily (recently around 315243.27772326). CVB Financial's SIR currently stands at 10.19. In other words for every 100,000 CVB Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10190 shares are currently held short.

However CVB Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CVB Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable CVB Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CVB Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CVB Financial shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0373% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CVB Financial shares, roughly 37 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against CVB Financial.

CVB Financial share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 55.45% of net profits

Recently CVB Financial has paid out, on average, around 55.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CVB Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CVB Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

CVB Financial'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.

CVB Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 15 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CVB Financial's shares ever split?

CVB Financial's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 3 January 2007. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CVB Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CVB Financial shares which in turn could have impacted CVB Financial's share price.

CVB Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CVB Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.4768 up to $21.7665. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CVBF.US volatility(beta: 0.63)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while CVB Financial's is 0.6278. This would suggest that CVB Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
