Is Truist Financial Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Truist Financial Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Truist Financial Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Truist Financial Corporation's P/E ratio
Truist Financial Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Truist Financial Corporation shares trade at around 16x 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.
Truist Financial Corporation's PEG ratio
Truist Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0328. 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 Truist Financial Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Truist Financial Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 34.9% of net profits
Recently Truist Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 34.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Truist Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Truist Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.83 per share.
While Truist Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Truist Financial Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Truist Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Truist Financial Corporation's shares ever split?
Truist Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 August 1998. 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 Truist Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Truist Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Truist Financial Corporation's share price.
Truist Financial Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Truist Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.2055 up to $67.61. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Truist Financial Corporation's is 1.2686. This would suggest that Truist Financial Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
