Is Meta Financial Group under- or over-valued?
Valuing Meta Financial Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Meta Financial Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Meta Financial Group's P/E ratio
Meta Financial Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Meta Financial Group shares trade at around 14x 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.

|Market capitalisation||$1.9 billion|

Meta Financial Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4.36% of net profits
Recently Meta Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 4.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.32% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Meta Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Meta Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.
While Meta Financial Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Meta Financial Group is investing more in its future growth.
Meta Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 3 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Meta Financial Group's shares ever split?
Meta Financial Group's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 5 October 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Meta Financial Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Meta Financial Group shares which in turn could have impacted Meta Financial Group's share price.
Meta Financial Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Meta Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $36.0195 up to $65.8986. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Meta Financial Group's is 0.8647. This would suggest that Meta Financial Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
