Is Heritage Commerce stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Heritage Commerce stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Heritage Commerce's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Heritage Commerce's P/E ratio
Heritage Commerce's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Heritage Commerce shares trade at around 13x 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.
Heritage Commerce's PEG ratio
Heritage Commerce's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.88. 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 Heritage Commerce's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Heritage Commerce share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 57.14% of net profits
Recently Heritage Commerce has paid out, on average, around 57.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Heritage Commerce shareholders could enjoy a 4.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Heritage Commerce's case, that would currently equate to about $0.52 per share.
Heritage Commerce's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Heritage Commerce's most recent dividend payout was on 25 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Heritage Commerce's shares ever split?
Heritage Commerce's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 3 February 2000. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Heritage Commerce shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Heritage Commerce shares which in turn could have impacted Heritage Commerce's share price.
Heritage Commerce share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Heritage Commerce's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.282 up to $12.5163. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Heritage Commerce's is 0.9996. This would suggest that Heritage Commerce's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
