Is U.S. Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing U.S. Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of U.S. Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
U.S. Bancorp's P/E ratio
U.S. 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 9x. In other words, U.S. Bancorp shares trade at around 9x 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.
U.S. Bancorp's PEG ratio
U.S. Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8404. 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 U.S. 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.

U.S. Bancorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 41.2% of net profits
Recently U.S. Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 41.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), U.S. Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 5.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In U.S. Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.92 per share.
While U.S. Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that U.S. Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
U.S. Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 15 October 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have U.S. Bancorp's shares ever split?
U.S. Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 15 April 1999. 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 U.S. Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for U.S. Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted U.S. Bancorp's share price.
