Is UMB Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

UMB Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

UMB 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 17x. In other words, UMB Financial Corporation shares trade at around 17x 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.

UMB Financial Corporation's PEG ratio

UMB Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.73. 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 UMB 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.

Shorting UMB Financial Corporation shares

There are currently 627,297 UMB Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as UMB Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% up from 606,968 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting UMB Financial Corporation shares can be evaluated.

UMB Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

UMB Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of UMB Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of UMB Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 178209.375). UMB Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.52. In other words for every 100,000 UMB Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3520 shares are currently held short.

However UMB Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of UMB Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable UMB Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case UMB Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 UMB Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0174% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable UMB Financial Corporation shares, roughly 17 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 UMB Financial Corporation.

UMB Financial Corporation share dividends

31%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.79% of net profits

Recently UMB Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 30.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), UMB Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In UMB Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.

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

UMB Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 4 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have UMB Financial Corporation's shares ever split?

UMB Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 May 2006. 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 UMB Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for UMB Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted UMB Financial Corporation's share price.

UMB Financial Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, UMB Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.8598 up to $72.4217. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UMBF.US volatility(beta: 1.04)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 UMB Financial Corporation's is 1.043. This would suggest that UMB Financial Corporation'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).
