Is Zions Bancorporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Zions Bancorporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Zions Bancorporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Zions Bancorporation's P/E ratio
Zions Bancorporation'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, Zions Bancorporation 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.
Zions Bancorporation's PEG ratio
Zions Bancorporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6745. 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 Zions Bancorporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Recently Zions Bancorporation has paid out, on average, around 28.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Zions Bancorporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Zions Bancorporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.52 per share.
While Zions Bancorporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Zions Bancorporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Zions Bancorporation's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 15 May 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Zions Bancorporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Zions Bancorporation shares which in turn could have impacted Zions Bancorporation's share price.
