Is Stock Yards Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Stock Yards Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Stock Yards Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Stock Yards Bancorp's P/E ratio
Stock Yards 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 22x. In other words, Stock Yards Bancorp shares trade at around 22x 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.
Stock Yards Bancorp's PEG ratio
Stock Yards Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2. 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 Stock Yards 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.

Stock Yards Bancorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.92% of net profits
Recently Stock Yards Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 37.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Stock Yards Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Stock Yards Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 per share.
While Stock Yards Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Stock Yards Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Stock Yards Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 3 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Stock Yards Bancorp's shares ever split?
Stock Yards Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 31 May 2016. 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 Stock Yards Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stock Yards Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Stock Yards Bancorp's share price.
Stock Yards Bancorp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Stock Yards Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $50.1117 up to $72.4613. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
