Is American River Bankshares under- or over-valued?

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

American River Bankshares's P/E ratio

American River Bankshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, American River Bankshares shares trade at around 14x 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.

American River Bankshares's PEG ratio

American River Bankshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.25. 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 American River Bankshares's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dividend payout ratio: 18.54% of net profits

Recently American River Bankshares has paid out, on average, around 18.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), American River Bankshares shareholders could enjoy a 1.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In American River Bankshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.

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

American River Bankshares's most recent dividend payout was on 4 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have American River Bankshares's shares ever split?

American River Bankshares's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 30 November 2008. 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 American River Bankshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for American River Bankshares shares which in turn could have impacted American River Bankshares's share price.

American River Bankshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, American River Bankshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.1657 up to $21.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
