Is Kearny Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Kearny Financial's P/E ratio

Kearny Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Kearny Financial shares trade at around 11x 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.

Kearny Financial's PEG ratio

Kearny Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 15.99. 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 Kearny Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Kearny Financial share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 42.57% of net profits

Recently Kearny Financial has paid out, on average, around 42.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kearny Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kearny Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.42 per share.

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

Kearny Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 24 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Kearny Financial's shares ever split?

Kearny Financial's shares were split on a 13804:1000 basis on 14 May 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 13804 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kearny Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 92.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kearny Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Kearny Financial's share price.

Kearny Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Kearny Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.8815 up to $13.6481. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KRNY.US volatility(beta: 0.77)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 Kearny Financial's is 0.7695. This would suggest that Kearny Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
