Is TriCo Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

TriCo Bancshares's P/E ratio

TriCo 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 19x. In other words, TriCo Bancshares shares trade at around 19x 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.

TriCo Bancshares's PEG ratio

TriCo Bancshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.91. 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 TriCo Bancshares's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting TriCo Bancshares shares

There are currently 324,627 TriCo Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as TriCo Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 11.1% down from 365,271 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting TriCo Bancshares shares can be evaluated.

TriCo Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TriCo Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TriCo Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TriCo Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 77108.551068884). TriCo Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 4.21. In other words for every 100,000 TriCo Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4210 shares are currently held short.

However TriCo Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TriCo Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable TriCo Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TriCo Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TriCo Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0125% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TriCo Bancshares shares, roughly 13 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against TriCo Bancshares.

TriCo Bancshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 41.57% of net profits

Recently TriCo Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 41.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TriCo Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TriCo Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.88 per share.

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

TriCo Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 18 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have TriCo Bancshares's shares ever split?

TriCo Bancshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 May 2004. 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 TriCo Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for TriCo Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted TriCo Bancshares's share price.

TriCo Bancshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TriCo Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.5512 up to $40.85. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
