Valuing Lakeland Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lakeland Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lakeland 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 11x. In other words, Lakeland Bancorp 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.
Lakeland Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.07. 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 Lakeland 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 972,225 Lakeland Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Lakeland Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 6.1% up from 916,733 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lakeland Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Lakeland Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lakeland Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lakeland Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 118275.54744526). Lakeland Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 8.22. In other words for every 100,000 Lakeland Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8220 shares are currently held short.
However Lakeland Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lakeland Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lakeland Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lakeland Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lakeland Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0196% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lakeland Bancorp shares, roughly 20 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Lakeland Bancorp.

Dividend payout ratio: 44.64% of net profits
Recently Lakeland Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 44.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lakeland Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lakeland Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
While Lakeland Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Lakeland Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Lakeland Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 13 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Lakeland Bancorp's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 30 May 2014. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lakeland Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lakeland Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Lakeland Bancorp's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Lakeland Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.0212 up to $16.7234. 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 Lakeland Bancorp's is 0.9549. This would suggest that Lakeland Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
