Is Meridian Bank stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Meridian Bank stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Meridian Bank's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Meridian Bank's P/E ratio
Meridian Bank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Meridian Bank shares trade at around 6x 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.

Meridian Bank share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 39.02% of net profits
Recently Meridian Bank has paid out, on average, around 39.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Meridian Bank shareholders could enjoy a 2.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Meridian Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.725 per share.
While Meridian Bank's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Meridian Bank may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Meridian Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 21 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Meridian Bank share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Meridian Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.5476 up to $38.0161. 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 Meridian Bank's is 0.4026. This would suggest that Meridian Bank's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
