Is Flagstar Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Flagstar Bancorp's P/E ratio

Flagstar 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 4x. In other words, Flagstar Bancorp shares trade at around 4x 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.

Flagstar Bancorp's PEG ratio

Flagstar Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.6. 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 Flagstar Bancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Flagstar Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 6.6% of net profits

Recently Flagstar Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 6.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Flagstar Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 0.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Flagstar Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.23 per share.

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

Flagstar Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 16 February 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Flagstar Bancorp's shares ever split?

Flagstar Bancorp's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 10 October 2012. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Flagstar Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Flagstar Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Flagstar Bancorp's share price.

Flagstar Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Flagstar Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40.537 up to $56.7002. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FBC.US volatility(beta: 1.56)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 Flagstar Bancorp's is 1.5611. This would suggest that Flagstar Bancorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
