Is WVS Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing WVS Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of WVS Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
WVS Financial's P/E ratio
WVS Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, WVS Financial shares trade at around 20x 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.

WVS Financial share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 55.6% of net profits
Recently WVS Financial has paid out, on average, around 55.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WVS Financial shareholders could enjoy a 2.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WVS Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
WVS Financial's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
WVS Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 19 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have WVS Financial's shares ever split?
WVS Financial's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 May 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your WVS Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for WVS Financial shares which in turn could have impacted WVS Financial's share price.
WVS Financial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, WVS Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.54 up to $15.6919. 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 WVS Financial's is 0.4678. This would suggest that WVS Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
