Is Park National Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Park National Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Park National Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Park National Corporation's P/E ratio
Park National Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Park National Corporation shares trade at around 14x recent earnings.
Park National Corporation's PEG ratio
Park National Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.82. 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 Park National Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Park National Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 49.04% of net profits
Recently Park National Corporation has paid out, on average, around 49.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Park National Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Park National Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $4.14 per share.
While Park National Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Park National Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Park National Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 8 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Park National Corporation's shares ever split?
Park National Corporation's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 28 November 2004. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Park National Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Park National Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Park National Corporation's share price.
Park National Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Park National Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $111.9375 up to $141.8453. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
