Is Live Oak Bancshares stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Live Oak Bancshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Live Oak Bancshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Live Oak Bancshares's P/E ratio
Live Oak Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Live Oak Bancshares shares trade at around 17x 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.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Live Oak Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 0.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Live Oak Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.
While Live Oak Bancshares's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Live Oak Bancshares is investing more in its future growth.

Live Oak Bancshares share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Live Oak Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.4394 up to $99.89. 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 Live Oak Bancshares's is 1.4835. This would suggest that Live Oak Bancshares's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
