Is Comerica Incorporated under- or over-valued?

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

Comerica Incorporated's P/E ratio

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

Comerica Incorporated's PEG ratio

Comerica Incorporated's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7633. 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 Comerica Incorporated's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Comerica Incorporated's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Comerica Incorporated.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Comerica Incorporated's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 24.95

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Comerica Incorporated's overall score of 24.95 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 44th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Comerica Incorporated is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Comerica Incorporated's environmental score

Environmental score: 1.22/100

Comerica Incorporated's environmental score of 1.22 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Comerica Incorporated is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Comerica Incorporated's social score

Social score: 12.51/100

Comerica Incorporated's social score of 12.51 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Comerica Incorporated is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Comerica Incorporated's governance score

Governance score: 10.66/100

Comerica Incorporated's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Comerica Incorporated is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Comerica Incorporated's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Comerica Incorporated scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Comerica Incorporated has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Comerica Incorporated share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 33.42% of net profits

Recently Comerica Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 33.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Comerica Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 2.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Comerica Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $2.72 per share.

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

Comerica Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 1 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Comerica Incorporated's shares ever split?

Comerica Incorporated's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 April 1998. 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 Comerica Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Comerica Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Comerica Incorporated's share price.

Comerica Incorporated share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Comerica Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $53.868 up to $97.3. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CMA.US volatility(beta: 1.51)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 Comerica Incorporated's is 1.5073. This would suggest that Comerica Incorporated's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
