Is Lake Shore Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Lake Shore Bancorp's P/E ratio

Lake Shore 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 12x. In other words, Lake Shore Bancorp shares trade at around 12x 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.

Lake Shore Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 87.18% of net profits

Recently Lake Shore Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 87.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lake Shore Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 5.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lake Shore Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

Lake Shore Bancorp'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.

Lake Shore Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 17 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Lake Shore Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lake Shore Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.82 up to $14.651. 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 Lake Shore Bancorp's is 0.4353. This would suggest that Lake Shore Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
