Is 1st Constitution Bancorp under- or over-valued?

Valuing 1st Constitution Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of 1st Constitution Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

1st Constitution Bancorp's P/E ratio

1st Constitution Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, 1st Constitution Bancorp shares trade at around 13x 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.

1st Constitution Bancorp's PEG ratio

1st Constitution Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7. 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 1st Constitution Bancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), 1st Constitution Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In 1st Constitution Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.39 per share.

While 1st Constitution Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that 1st Constitution Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.

Have 1st Constitution Bancorp's shares ever split?

1st Constitution Bancorp's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 11 January 2016. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your 1st Constitution Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for 1st Constitution Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted 1st Constitution Bancorp's share price.
