Is Community Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Community Financial's P/E ratio

Community Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Community Financial shares trade at around 8x 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.

Community Financial's PEG ratio

Community Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7. 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 Community Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Community Financial share dividends

14%

Dividend payout ratio: 14.49% of net profits

Recently Community Financial has paid out, on average, around 14.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Community Financial shareholders could enjoy a 1.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Community Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.

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

Community Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 23 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Community Financial's shares ever split?

Community Financial's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 28 November 2006. 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 Community Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Community Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Community Financial's share price.

Community Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Community Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.6926 up to $41.43. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TCFC.US volatility(beta: 0.78)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 Community Financial's is 0.7771. This would suggest that Community Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
