Is Alerus Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Alerus Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

Alerus Financial 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 9x. In other words, Alerus Financial Corporation 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.

Shorting Alerus Financial Corporation shares

There are currently 138,910 Alerus Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Alerus Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% down from 142,659 last month.

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

Alerus Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Alerus Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alerus Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alerus Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 12994.38727783). Alerus Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 10.69. In other words for every 100,000 Alerus Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10690 shares are currently held short.

However Alerus Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Alerus Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Alerus Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Alerus Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Alerus Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0097% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Alerus Financial Corporation shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Alerus Financial Corporation.

Alerus Financial Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 20.13% of net profits

Recently Alerus Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 20.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alerus Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alerus Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.61 per share.

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

Alerus Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Alerus Financial Corporation's shares ever split?

Alerus Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 14 September 2014. 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 Alerus Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alerus Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Alerus Financial Corporation's share price.

Alerus Financial Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Alerus Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.6115 up to $33.7843. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALRS.US volatility(beta: 0.78)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
