Is Ohio Valley Banc stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Ohio Valley Banc's P/E ratio

Ohio Valley Banc's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Ohio Valley Banc shares trade at around 11x 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.

Ohio Valley Banc share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 30.67% of net profits

Recently Ohio Valley Banc has paid out, on average, around 30.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ohio Valley Banc shareholders could enjoy a 3.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ohio Valley Banc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 per share.

While Ohio Valley Banc's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Ohio Valley Banc may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Ohio Valley Banc's most recent dividend payout was on 9 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ohio Valley Banc's shares ever split?

Ohio Valley Banc's shares were split on a 125:100 basis on 10 May 2005. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 125 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ohio Valley Banc shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ohio Valley Banc shares which in turn could have impacted Ohio Valley Banc's share price.

Ohio Valley Banc share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ohio Valley Banc's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.4981 up to $32.2295. 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 Ohio Valley Banc's is 0.143. This would suggest that Ohio Valley Banc's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
