Is Equity Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

Equity Bancshares's P/E ratio

Equity Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Equity Bancshares shares trade at around 9x 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.

Equity Bancshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 4.27% of net profits

Recently Equity Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 4.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Equity Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 0.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Equity Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.

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

Equity Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 13 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Equity Bancshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Equity Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.9269 up to $35.9152. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EQBK.US volatility(beta: 0.71)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
