Is Sandy Spring Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Sandy Spring Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sandy Spring Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Sandy Spring Bancorp's P/E ratio

Sandy Spring 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 9x. In other words, Sandy Spring Bancorp 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.

Sandy Spring Bancorp's PEG ratio

Sandy Spring Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0138. 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 Sandy Spring 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.

Sandy Spring Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 37.26% of net profits

Recently Sandy Spring Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 37.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sandy Spring Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sandy Spring Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.34 per share.

While Sandy Spring Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Sandy Spring Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Sandy Spring Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 15 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Sandy Spring Bancorp's shares ever split?

Sandy Spring Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 20 December 2001. 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 Sandy Spring Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sandy Spring Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Sandy Spring Bancorp's share price.

Sandy Spring Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sandy Spring Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.0145 up to $47.1005. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SASR.US volatility(beta: 0.95)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Sandy Spring Bancorp's is 0.9473. This would suggest that Sandy Spring Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
