Is Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's P/E ratio

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares trade at around 11x 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.

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 33.43% of net profits

Recently Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 33.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.75 per share.

While Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 19 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's shares ever split?

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 September 2017. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's share price.

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.6781 up to $41.5555. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's is 0.3728. This would suggest that Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
