Valuing Valley National Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Valley National Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Valley National Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Valley National Bancorp shares trade at around 12x 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.
Valley National Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.32. 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 Valley National Bancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6.8 million Valley National Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Valley National Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 15.2% up from 5.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Valley National Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Valley National Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Valley National Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Valley National Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Valley National Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.57. In other words for every 100,000 Valley National Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3570 shares are currently held short.
However Valley National Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Valley National Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Valley National Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Valley National Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Valley National Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0198% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Valley National Bancorp shares, roughly 20 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 Valley National Bancorp.

Dividend payout ratio: 47.31% of net profits
Recently Valley National Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 47.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Valley National Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 4.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Valley National Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.44 per share.
While Valley National Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Valley National Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Valley National Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 4 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Valley National Bancorp's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 9 May 2012. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Valley National Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Valley National Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Valley National Bancorp's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Valley National Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.7607 up to $10.919. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Valley National Bancorp's is 1.3213. This would suggest that Valley National Bancorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
