Is Bank of the James Financial Group under- or over-valued?

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

Bank of the James Financial Group's P/E ratio

Bank of the James Financial Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Bank of the James Financial Group shares trade at around 8x 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.

Bank of the James Financial Group share dividends

17%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.11% of net profits

Recently Bank of the James Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 17.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bank of the James Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bank of the James Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.

While Bank of the James Financial Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bank of the James Financial Group is investing more in its future growth.

Bank of the James Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 17 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Bank of the James Financial Group's shares ever split?

Bank of the James Financial Group's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 24 June 2021. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bank of the James Financial Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bank of the James Financial Group shares which in turn could have impacted Bank of the James Financial Group's share price.
