Is Peoples Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 11x. In other words, Peoples Bancorp 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.
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.

Peoples Bancorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 60.91% of net profits
Recently Peoples Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 60.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.2% 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 5.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Peoples Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.48 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 22 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Peoples Bancorp's shares ever split?
Peoples Bancorp's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 15 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 $25.3051 up to $33.3599. 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 Peoples Bancorp's is 0.8905. This would suggest that Peoples Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
