Is Provident Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Provident Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Provident Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Provident Financial's P/E ratio
Provident Financial'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, Provident Financial 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.

Provident Financial share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 42.42% of net profits
Recently Provident Financial has paid out, on average, around 42.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Provident Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Provident Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
While Provident Financial's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Provident Financial may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Provident Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 8 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Provident Financial's shares ever split?
Provident Financial's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 February 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Provident Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Provident Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Provident Financial's share price.
Provident Financial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Provident Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.76 up to $17.6371. 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 Provident Financial's is 0.5735. This would suggest that Provident Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
