Is Lakeland Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Lakeland Bancorp's P/E ratio

Lakeland 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 11x. In other words, Lakeland Bancorp shares trade at around 11x 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.

Lakeland Bancorp's PEG ratio

Lakeland Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.07. 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 Lakeland 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.

Lakeland Bancorp share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 29.19% of net profits

Recently Lakeland Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 29.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lakeland Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lakeland Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.52 per share.

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

Lakeland Bancorp'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 Lakeland Bancorp's shares ever split?

Lakeland Bancorp's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 29 May 2014. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lakeland Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lakeland Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Lakeland Bancorp's share price.

Lakeland Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lakeland Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.5995 up to $20.69. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LBAI.US volatility(beta: 0.91)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 Lakeland Bancorp's is 0.9123. This would suggest that Lakeland Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
