Is Malvern Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Malvern Bancorp's P/E ratio

Malvern 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 19x. In other words, Malvern Bancorp shares trade at around 19x 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.

Have Malvern Bancorp's shares ever split?

Malvern Bancorp's shares were split on a 2687:2500 basis on 11 October 2012. So if you had owned 2500 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2687 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Malvern Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Malvern Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Malvern Bancorp's share price.

Malvern Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Malvern Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.11 up to $18. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MLVF.US volatility(beta: 0.67)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 Malvern Bancorp's is 0.6732. This would suggest that Malvern Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
