Is Eastern Bankshares stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Eastern Bankshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Eastern Bankshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Eastern Bankshares's P/E ratio
Eastern Bankshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Eastern Bankshares shares trade at around 14x 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.
However, Eastern Bankshares's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the banks-regional industry or those of similar companies.

Eastern Bankshares share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 32% of net profits
Recently Eastern Bankshares has paid out, on average, around 32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eastern Bankshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eastern Bankshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
While Eastern Bankshares's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Eastern Bankshares may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Eastern Bankshares's most recent dividend payout was on 15 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
