Is New York Community Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

New York Community Bancorp's P/E ratio

New York Community 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 8x. In other words, New York Community Bancorp shares trade at around 8x 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.

New York Community Bancorp's PEG ratio

New York Community Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5245. 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 New York Community 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.

New York Community Bancorp share dividends

53%

Dividend payout ratio: 52.71% of net profits

Recently New York Community Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 52.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), New York Community Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 7.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In New York Community Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

New York Community 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.

New York Community Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 16 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have New York Community Bancorp's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your New York Community Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for New York Community Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted New York Community Bancorp's share price.

New York Community Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, New York Community Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.0141 up to $11.2553. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
