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 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, WesBanco 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.
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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 845,303 WesBanco shares held short by investors – that's known as WesBanco's "short interest". This figure is 9% down from 928,772 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting WesBanco shares can be evaluated.
WesBanco's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WesBanco shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WesBanco shares traded daily (recently around 252329.25373134). WesBanco's SIR currently stands at 3.35. In other words for every 100,000 WesBanco shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3350 shares are currently held short.
However WesBanco's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WesBanco shares, or, against the total number of tradable WesBanco shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WesBanco's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WesBanco shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0139% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WesBanco shares, roughly 14 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 WesBanco.

Dividend payout ratio: 37.32% of net profits
Recently WesBanco has paid out, on average, around 37.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.61% 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 3.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WesBanco's case, that would currently equate to about $1.3 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 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
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.
Over the last 12 months, WesBanco's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.6797 up to $39.1248. 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 WesBanco's is 1.0788. This would suggest that WesBanco'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).
