Valuing Prosperity Bancshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Prosperity Bancshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Prosperity Bancshares'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, Prosperity Bancshares 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.
Prosperity Bancshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.67. 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 Prosperity Bancshares's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.9 million Prosperity Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Prosperity Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% down from 2.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Prosperity Bancshares shares can be evaluated.
Prosperity Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Prosperity Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Prosperity Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 321408.5106383). Prosperity Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 8.93. In other words for every 100,000 Prosperity Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8930 shares are currently held short.
However Prosperity Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Prosperity Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Prosperity Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Prosperity Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Prosperity Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0323% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Prosperity Bancshares shares, roughly 32 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 Prosperity Bancshares.

Dividend payout ratio: 34.12% of net profits
Recently Prosperity Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 34.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Prosperity Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Prosperity Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $1.96 per share.
While Prosperity Bancshares's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Prosperity Bancshares may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Prosperity Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 4 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Prosperity Bancshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 June 2002. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Prosperity Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Prosperity Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Prosperity Bancshares's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Prosperity Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.0287 up to $72.7671. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Prosperity Bancshares's is 1.3948. This would suggest that Prosperity Bancshares's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
