Is Ameris Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Ameris Bancorp's P/E ratio

Ameris 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 12x. In other words, Ameris Bancorp shares trade at around 12x 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.

Ameris Bancorp's PEG ratio

Ameris Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.45. 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 Ameris 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.

Ameris Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 14.15% of net profits

Recently Ameris Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 14.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ameris Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ameris Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While Ameris Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ameris Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.

Ameris Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 7 July 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ameris Bancorp's shares ever split?

Ameris Bancorp's shares were split on a 211:210 basis on 27 June 2010. So if you had owned 210 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 211 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ameris Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ameris Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Ameris Bancorp's share price.

Ameris Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ameris Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.922 up to $53.6517. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ABCB.US volatility(beta: 1.05)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 Ameris Bancorp's is 1.049. This would suggest that Ameris Bancorp'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).
