Is Citizens Holding Company under- or over-valued?

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

Citizens Holding Company's P/E ratio

Citizens Holding Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Citizens Holding Company shares trade at around 13x 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.

Citizens Holding Company share dividends

71%

Dividend payout ratio: 70.95% of net profits

Recently Citizens Holding Company has paid out, on average, around 70.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Citizens Holding Company shareholders could enjoy a 5.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Citizens Holding Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.96 per share.

Citizens Holding Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Citizens Holding Company's most recent dividend payout was on 30 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Citizens Holding Company's shares ever split?

Citizens Holding Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 January 2002. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Citizens Holding Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Citizens Holding Company shares which in turn could have impacted Citizens Holding Company's share price.

Citizens Holding Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Citizens Holding Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.5518 up to $26.8019. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Citizens Holding Company's is 0.0086. This would suggest that Citizens Holding Company's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
