Is Guaranty Federal Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

Guaranty Federal Bancshares's P/E ratio

Guaranty Federal 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 17x. In other words, Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares trade at around 17x 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.

Guaranty Federal Bancshares share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 28.99% of net profits

Recently Guaranty Federal Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 28.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Guaranty Federal Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 1.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Guaranty Federal Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

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

Guaranty Federal Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 20 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Guaranty Federal Bancshares's shares ever split?

Guaranty Federal Bancshares's shares were split on a 1931:1000 basis on 30 December 1997. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1931 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 48.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Guaranty Federal Bancshares's share price.

Guaranty Federal Bancshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Guaranty Federal Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.8685 up to $34.67. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GFED.US volatility(beta: 0.61)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
