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 10x. In other words, New York Community Bancorp shares trade at around 10x 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.

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.
