Is Citizens-and-Northern Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's P/E ratio

Citizens-and-Northern Corporation'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, Citizens-and-Northern Corporation 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.

Citizens-and-Northern Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 56.35% of net profits

Recently Citizens-and-Northern Corporation has paid out, on average, around 56.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 4.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.11 per share.

Citizens-and-Northern Corporation'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-and-Northern Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 12 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's shares ever split?

Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's shares were split on a 101:100 basis on 28 December 2007. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 101 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's share price.

Citizens-and-Northern Corporation share price volatility
