Is TrustCo Bank Corp NY under- or over-valued?

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

TrustCo Bank Corp NY's P/E ratio

TrustCo Bank Corp NY's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, TrustCo Bank Corp NY shares trade at around 11x 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.

TrustCo Bank Corp NY's PEG ratio

TrustCo Bank Corp NY's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.73. 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 TrustCo Bank Corp NY'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 TrustCo Bank Corp NY shares

There are currently 234,833 TrustCo Bank Corp NY shares held short by investors – that's known as TrustCo Bank Corp NY's "short interest". This figure is 13.5% up from 206,951 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting TrustCo Bank Corp NY shares can be evaluated.

TrustCo Bank Corp NY's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TrustCo Bank Corp NY's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TrustCo Bank Corp NY shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TrustCo Bank Corp NY shares traded daily (recently around 93187.698412698). TrustCo Bank Corp NY's SIR currently stands at 2.52. In other words for every 100,000 TrustCo Bank Corp NY shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2520 shares are currently held short.

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

TrustCo Bank Corp NY share dividends

49%

Dividend payout ratio: 49.36% of net profits

Recently TrustCo Bank Corp NY has paid out, on average, around 49.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TrustCo Bank Corp NY shareholders could enjoy a 4.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TrustCo Bank Corp NY's case, that would currently equate to about $1.363 per share.

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

TrustCo Bank Corp NY's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have TrustCo Bank Corp NY's shares ever split?

TrustCo Bank Corp NY's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 27 May 2021. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your TrustCo Bank Corp NY shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for TrustCo Bank Corp NY shares which in turn could have impacted TrustCo Bank Corp NY's share price.

TrustCo Bank Corp NY share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TrustCo Bank Corp NY's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.5158 up to $39.3886. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TRST.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 TrustCo Bank Corp NY's is 1.2073. This would suggest that TrustCo Bank Corp NY'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).
