Is Dime Community Bancshares stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Dime Community Bancshares's P/E ratio

Dime Community 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 21x. In other words, Dime Community Bancshares 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.

Dime Community Bancshares's PEG ratio

Dime Community Bancshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 13.64. 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 Dime Community 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.

Dime Community Bancshares share dividends

47%

Dividend payout ratio: 47.29% of net profits

Recently Dime Community Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 47.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dime Community Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dime Community Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.864 per share.

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

Dime Community Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 23 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Dime Community Bancshares's shares ever split?

Dime Community Bancshares's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 July 2004. 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 Dime Community Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dime Community Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Dime Community Bancshares's share price.

Dime Community Bancshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dime Community Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.1859 up to $38.14. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DCOM.US volatility(beta: 1.12)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 Dime Community Bancshares's is 1.1237. This would suggest that Dime Community Bancshares's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
