Is Valley National Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 P/E ratio
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 11x. In other words, Valley National Bancorp 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.
Valley National Bancorp's PEG ratio
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.

Valley National Bancorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.29% of net profits
Recently Valley National Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 37.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.91% 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 3.91% 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 3 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Valley National Bancorp's shares ever split?
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.
Valley National Bancorp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Valley National Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.9157 up to $14.6839. 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 1.1426. This would suggest that Valley National Bancorp'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).
