Is Amerant Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Amerant Bancorp's P/E ratio

Amerant 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 24x. In other words, Amerant Bancorp shares trade at around 24x 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.

Amerant Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 7.11% of net profits

Recently Amerant Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 7.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Amerant Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Amerant Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.94 per share.

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

Amerant Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 27 February 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Amerant Bancorp's shares ever split?

Amerant Bancorp's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 23 October 2018. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Amerant Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Amerant Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Amerant Bancorp's share price.

Amerant Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Amerant Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.6058 up to $36.6571. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMTB.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 Amerant Bancorp's is 1.4189. This would suggest that Amerant Bancorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
