Is Glacier Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 20x. In other words, Glacier Bancorp shares trade at around 20x 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.

Glacier Bancorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 42.33% of net profits
Recently Glacier Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 42.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.62% 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 2.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Glacier Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.3 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 21 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Glacier Bancorp's shares ever split?
Glacier Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 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 $44.1271 up to $59.8563. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Glacier Bancorp's is 0.7974. This would suggest that Glacier Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
