Is Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's P/E ratio

Farmers-and-Merchants 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 13x. In other words, Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares trade at around 13x 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.

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 54.72% of net profits

Recently Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 54.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 4.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.86 per share.

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 19 July 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 July 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's shares ever split?

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 September 2017. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's share price.

Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.3463 up to $27.1881. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
