Is Glacier Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Glacier Bancorp's P/E ratio

Glacier 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 17x. In other words, Glacier Bancorp shares trade at around 17x 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.

Glacier Bancorp's PEG ratio

Glacier Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1. 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 Glacier 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.

Shorting Glacier Bancorp shares

There are currently 2.4 million Glacier Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Glacier Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 10.7% up from 2.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Glacier Bancorp shares can be evaluated.

Glacier Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Glacier Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Glacier Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Glacier Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 518730.65217391). Glacier Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 4.6. In other words for every 100,000 Glacier Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4600 shares are currently held short.

However Glacier Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Glacier Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Glacier Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Glacier Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Glacier Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0286% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Glacier Bancorp shares, roughly 29 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 Glacier Bancorp.

Glacier Bancorp share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.53% of net profits

Recently Glacier Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 26.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Glacier Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Glacier Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.3 per share.

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

Glacier Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 20 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Glacier Bancorp's shares ever split?

Glacier Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 14 December 2006. 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 Glacier Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Glacier Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Glacier Bancorp's share price.

Glacier Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Glacier Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.8343 up to $66.2146. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GBCI.US volatility(beta: 0.95)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 Glacier Bancorp's is 0.9534. This would suggest that Glacier Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
