Is Umpqua Holdings Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Umpqua Holdings Corporation's P/E ratio

Umpqua Holdings 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 10x. In other words, Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares trade at around 10x 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.

Umpqua Holdings Corporation's PEG ratio

Umpqua Holdings Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.24. 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 Umpqua Holdings 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 Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares

There are currently 4.1 million Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Umpqua Holdings Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.9% down from 4.2 million last month.

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

Umpqua Holdings Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Umpqua Holdings Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Umpqua Holdings Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.11. In other words for every 100,000 Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3110 shares are currently held short.

However Umpqua Holdings Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Umpqua Holdings Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0207% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares, roughly 21 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 Umpqua Holdings Corporation.

Umpqua Holdings Corporation share dividends

48%

Dividend payout ratio: 48.42% of net profits

Recently Umpqua Holdings Corporation has paid out, on average, around 48.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Umpqua Holdings Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Umpqua Holdings Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 per share.

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

Umpqua Holdings Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Umpqua Holdings Corporation's shares ever split?

Umpqua Holdings Corporation's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 2 February 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Umpqua Holdings Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Umpqua Holdings Corporation's share price.

Umpqua Holdings Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Umpqua Holdings Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.5853 up to $17.9677. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

UMPQ.US volatility(beta: 1.2)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 Umpqua Holdings Corporation's is 1.2022. This would suggest that Umpqua Holdings 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).
