Is Sierra Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Sierra Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sierra Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sierra Bancorp's P/E ratio
Sierra 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, Sierra 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.
Sierra Bancorp's PEG ratio
Sierra Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.27. 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 Sierra 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.

Sierra Bancorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.6% of net profits
Recently Sierra Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 37.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sierra Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 4.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sierra Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.91 per share.
While Sierra Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Sierra Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Sierra Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 14 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Sierra Bancorp's shares ever split?
Sierra Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 November 1997. 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 Sierra Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sierra Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Sierra Bancorp's share price.
Sierra Bancorp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Sierra Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.25 up to $28.0892. 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 Sierra Bancorp's is 1.0024. This would suggest that Sierra Bancorp's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
