Is Mercantile Bank Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Mercantile Bank Corporation's P/E ratio

Mercantile 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 10x. In other words, Mercantile Bank Corporation shares trade at around 10x 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.

Mercantile Bank Corporation's PEG ratio

Mercantile Bank Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.51. 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 Mercantile 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.

Mercantile Bank Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 30.49% of net profits

Recently Mercantile Bank Corporation has paid out, on average, around 30.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mercantile Bank Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mercantile Bank Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.16 per share.

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

Mercantile Bank Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Mercantile Bank Corporation's shares ever split?

Mercantile Bank Corporation's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 18 April 2007. 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 Mercantile Bank Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mercantile Bank Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Mercantile Bank Corporation's share price.

Mercantile Bank Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mercantile Bank Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.7882 up to $38.85. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MBWM.US volatility(beta: 1.13)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 Mercantile Bank Corporation's is 1.1262. This would suggest that Mercantile 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).
