Is Towne Bank stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Towne Bank's P/E ratio

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

Towne Bank share dividends

34%

Dividend payout ratio: 34.23% of net profits

Recently Towne Bank has paid out, on average, around 34.23% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Towne Bank shareholders could enjoy a 3.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Towne Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.89 per share.

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

Towne Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 11 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Towne Bank's shares ever split?

Towne Bank's shares were split on a 103:100 basis on 22 May 2012. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 103 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Towne Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Towne Bank shares which in turn could have impacted Towne Bank's share price.

Towne Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Towne Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.7696 up to $33.1762. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TOWN.US volatility(beta: 1.02)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 Towne Bank's is 1.0223. This would suggest that Towne Bank'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).
