Is WesBanco stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

WesBanco's P/E ratio

WesBanco'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, WesBanco 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.

WesBanco's PEG ratio

WesBanco's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.71. 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 WesBanco's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

WesBanco share dividends

41%

Dividend payout ratio: 41.23% of net profits

Recently WesBanco has paid out, on average, around 41.23% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WesBanco shareholders could enjoy a 4.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WesBanco's case, that would currently equate to about $1.33 per share.

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

WesBanco's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have WesBanco's shares ever split?

WesBanco's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 3 August 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your WesBanco shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for WesBanco shares which in turn could have impacted WesBanco's share price.

WesBanco share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, WesBanco's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.323 up to $37.609. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WSBC.US volatility(beta: 0.94)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 WesBanco's is 0.9415. This would suggest that WesBanco's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
