Is Oak Valley Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Oak Valley Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Oak Valley Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Oak Valley Bancorp's P/E ratio
Oak Valley 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, Oak Valley 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.

Oak Valley Bancorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 16.78% of net profits
Recently Oak Valley Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 16.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Oak Valley Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Oak Valley Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.3 per share.
While Oak Valley Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Oak Valley Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.
Oak Valley Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 12 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Oak Valley Bancorp's shares ever split?
Oak Valley Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 17 January 2006. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Oak Valley Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Oak Valley Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Oak Valley Bancorp's share price.
Oak Valley Bancorp share price volatility
