Is German American Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

German American Bancorp's P/E ratio

German American 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 14x. In other words, German American Bancorp 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.

German American Bancorp's PEG ratio

German American Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.43. 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 German American 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.

German American Bancorp share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 28.85% of net profits

Recently German American Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 28.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), German American Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In German American Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.

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

German American Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 20 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have German American Bancorp's shares ever split?

German American Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 24 April 2017. 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 German American Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for German American Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted German American Bancorp's share price.

German American Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, German American Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.5587 up to $42.9938. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GABC.US volatility(beta: 0.7)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 German American Bancorp's is 0.6956. This would suggest that German American Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
