Is Fifth Third Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Fifth Third Bancorp's P/E ratio

Fifth Third 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 10x. In other words, Fifth Third Bancorp shares trade at around 10x 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.

Fifth Third Bancorp's PEG ratio

Fifth Third Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.6914. 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 Fifth Third Bancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Fifth Third Bancorp share dividends

30%

Dividend payout ratio: 29.65% of net profits

Recently Fifth Third Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 29.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fifth Third Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fifth Third Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.26 per share.

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

Fifth Third Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 16 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Fifth Third Bancorp's shares ever split?

Fifth Third Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 July 2000. 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 Fifth Third Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fifth Third Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Fifth Third Bancorp's share price.

Fifth Third Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Fifth Third Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.6082 up to $48.3816. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FITB.US volatility(beta: 1.22)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 Fifth Third Bancorp's is 1.2208. This would suggest that Fifth Third Bancorp'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).
