Is Independent Bank Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Independent Bank Corporation's P/E ratio

Independent Bank 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 8x. In other words, Independent Bank Corporation shares trade at around 8x 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.

Independent Bank Corporation's PEG ratio

Independent Bank Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.33. 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 Independent Bank Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Independent Bank Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 27.45% of net profits

Recently Independent Bank Corporation has paid out, on average, around 27.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Independent Bank Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Independent Bank Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.83 per share.

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

Independent Bank Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Independent Bank Corporation's shares ever split?

Independent Bank Corporation's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 31 August 2010. 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 Independent Bank Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Independent Bank Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Independent Bank Corporation's share price.

Independent Bank Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Independent Bank Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.6005 up to $25.94. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IBCP.US volatility(beta: 1.06)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Independent Bank Corporation's is 1.0644. This would suggest that Independent Bank Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
