Is ServisFirst Bancshares stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

ServisFirst Bancshares's P/E ratio

ServisFirst 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 14x. In other words, ServisFirst Bancshares 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.

ServisFirst Bancshares share dividends

17%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.2% of net profits

Recently ServisFirst Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 17.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ServisFirst Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 1.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ServisFirst Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.97 per share.

While ServisFirst Bancshares's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ServisFirst Bancshares is investing more in its future growth.

ServisFirst Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 5 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ServisFirst Bancshares's shares ever split?

ServisFirst Bancshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 December 2016. 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 ServisFirst Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ServisFirst Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted ServisFirst Bancshares's share price.

ServisFirst Bancshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ServisFirst Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $63.2795 up to $96.2966. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SFBS.US volatility(beta: 0.94)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 ServisFirst Bancshares's is 0.9407. This would suggest that ServisFirst Bancshares's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
