Is Century Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Century Bancorp's P/E ratio

Century 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 14x. In other words, Century Bancorp 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.

Century Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 12.05% of net profits

Recently Century Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 12.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Century Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 0.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Century Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.

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

Century Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Century Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Century Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $74.9857 up to $120.749. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CNBKA.US volatility(beta: 0.97)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 Century Bancorp's is 0.9652. This would suggest that Century Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
