Is VersaBank stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

VersaBank's P/E ratio

VersaBank'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, VersaBank 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.

However, VersaBank's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the banks-regional industry or those of similar companies.

VersaBank share dividends

9%

Dividend payout ratio: 9.26% of net profits

Recently VersaBank has paid out, on average, around 9.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), VersaBank shareholders could enjoy a 1.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In VersaBank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

While VersaBank's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that VersaBank is investing more in its future growth.

VersaBank's most recent dividend payout was on 30 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

VersaBank's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

VersaBank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, VersaBank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.06 up to $14.2275. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

VBNK.US volatility(beta: 1.08)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 VersaBank's is 1.0828. This would suggest that VersaBank'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).

To put VersaBank's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
