Is Penns Woods Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Penns Woods Bancorp's P/E ratio

Penns Woods 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, Penns Woods 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.

Penns Woods Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 58.65% of net profits

Recently Penns Woods Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 58.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Penns Woods Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 6.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Penns Woods Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.

Penns Woods 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.

Penns Woods Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 24 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Penns Woods Bancorp's shares ever split?

Penns Woods Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 30 September 2019. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 Penns Woods Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Penns Woods Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Penns Woods Bancorp's share price.

Penns Woods Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Penns Woods Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.74 up to $25.9665. 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 Penns Woods Bancorp's is 0.495. This would suggest that Penns Woods Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
