Is Regions Financial Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Regions Financial Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Regions Financial Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Regions Financial Corporation's P/E ratio
Regions Financial 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 9x. In other words, Regions Financial Corporation shares trade at around 9x 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.
Regions Financial Corporation's PEG ratio
Regions Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5245. 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 Regions Financial 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.

Regions Financial Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 31.98% of net profits
Recently Regions Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 31.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Regions Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Regions Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
While Regions Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Regions Financial Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Regions Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 2 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Regions Financial Corporation's shares ever split?
Regions Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 12346:1000 basis on 30 June 2004. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 12346 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Regions Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 91.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Regions Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Regions Financial Corporation's share price.
Regions Financial Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Regions Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.8438 up to $24.9444. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Regions Financial Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
