Is Fulton Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Fulton Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

Fulton Financial Corporation'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, Fulton Financial Corporation 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.

Shorting Fulton Financial Corporation shares

There are currently 3.6 million Fulton Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Fulton Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 14.2% down from 4.2 million last month.

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

Fulton Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fulton Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fulton Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fulton Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Fulton Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.31. In other words for every 100,000 Fulton Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3310 shares are currently held short.

However Fulton Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fulton Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fulton Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fulton Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fulton Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0224% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fulton Financial Corporation shares, roughly 22 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Fulton Financial Corporation.

Fulton Financial Corporation share dividends

26%

Dividend payout ratio: 25.83% of net profits

Recently Fulton Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 25.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fulton Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fulton Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.54 per share.

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

Fulton Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Fulton Financial Corporation's shares ever split?

Fulton Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 16 May 2006. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Fulton Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fulton Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Fulton Financial Corporation's share price.

Fulton Financial Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Fulton Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.5032 up to $18.178. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FULT.US volatility(beta: 0.84)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 Fulton Financial Corporation's is 0.8428. This would suggest that Fulton Financial Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
