Is Peoples Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Peoples Bancorp's P/E ratio

Peoples 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 13x. In other words, Peoples Bancorp shares trade at around 13x 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.

Peoples Bancorp's PEG ratio

Peoples Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.06. 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 Peoples 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.

Shorting Peoples Bancorp shares

There are currently 454,578 Peoples Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Peoples Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 2.8% up from 442,103 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Peoples Bancorp shares can be evaluated.

Peoples Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Peoples Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Peoples Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Peoples Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 75511.295681063). Peoples Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 6.02. In other words for every 100,000 Peoples Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6020 shares are currently held short.

However Peoples Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Peoples Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Peoples Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Peoples Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Peoples Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0255% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Peoples Bancorp shares, roughly 26 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Peoples Bancorp.

Peoples Bancorp share dividends

55%

Dividend payout ratio: 55.12% of net profits

Recently Peoples Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 55.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.28% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Peoples Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 4.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Peoples Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.4 per share.

Peoples 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.

Peoples Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 21 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Peoples Bancorp's shares ever split?

Peoples Bancorp's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 14 July 2013. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Peoples Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Peoples Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Peoples Bancorp's share price.

Peoples Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Peoples Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.6064 up to $36.75. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PEBO.US volatility(beta: 0.94)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Peoples Bancorp's is 0.9432. This would suggest that Peoples Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
