Is Regions Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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 14x. In other words, Regions Financial Corporation shares trade at around 14x 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 0.8989. 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.

Shorting Regions Financial Corporation shares

There are currently 19.0 million Regions Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Regions Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 15.1% down from 22.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Regions Financial Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Regions Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Regions Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Regions Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Regions Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 9.5 million). Regions Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2. In other words for every 100,000 Regions Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2000 shares are currently held short.

However Regions Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Regions Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Regions Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Regions Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Regions Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0225% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Regions Financial Corporation shares, roughly 23 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Regions Financial Corporation.

Regions Financial Corporation share dividends

41%

Dividend payout ratio: 40.81% of net profits

Recently Regions Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 40.81% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.84% 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 2.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Regions Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.62 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 30 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2021 (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 $8.0565 up to $22.4431. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RF.US volatility(beta: 1.57)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Regions Financial Corporation's is 1.5659. 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).
