Is ACNB Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

ACNB Corporation's P/E ratio

ACNB Corporation'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, ACNB Corporation 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.

Shorting ACNB Corporation shares

There are currently 79,048 ACNB Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as ACNB Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 35.3% up from 58,415 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ACNB Corporation shares can be evaluated.

ACNB Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ACNB Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ACNB Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ACNB Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 14424.817518248). ACNB Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.48. In other words for every 100,000 ACNB Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5480 shares are currently held short.

However ACNB Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ACNB Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable ACNB Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ACNB Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ACNB Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0094% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ACNB Corporation shares, roughly 9 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against ACNB Corporation.

ACNB Corporation share dividends

48%

Dividend payout ratio: 48.04% of net profits

Recently ACNB Corporation has paid out, on average, around 48.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ACNB Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ACNB Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

While ACNB Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ACNB Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

ACNB Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ACNB Corporation's shares ever split?

ACNB Corporation's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 28 November 2007. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ACNB Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ACNB Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted ACNB Corporation's share price.

ACNB Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ACNB Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.8211 up to $36.4551. 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 ACNB Corporation's is 0.1155. This would suggest that ACNB Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
