Is BancorpSouth Bank under- or over-valued?

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

BancorpSouth Bank's P/E ratio

BancorpSouth Bank'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, BancorpSouth Bank 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.

BancorpSouth Bank's PEG ratio

BancorpSouth Bank's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.8. 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 BancorpSouth Bank's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

BancorpSouth Bank share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 26.35% of net profits

Recently BancorpSouth Bank has paid out, on average, around 26.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BancorpSouth Bank shareholders could enjoy a 2.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BancorpSouth Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.77 per share.

While BancorpSouth Bank's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that BancorpSouth Bank may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

BancorpSouth Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 1 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have BancorpSouth Bank's shares ever split?

BancorpSouth Bank's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 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 BancorpSouth Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BancorpSouth Bank shares which in turn could have impacted BancorpSouth Bank's share price.

BancorpSouth Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BancorpSouth Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.6987 up to $35.1235. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BXS.US volatility(beta: 1.21)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while BancorpSouth Bank's is 1.2111. This would suggest that BancorpSouth Bank's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
