Is Axos Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Axos Financial's P/E ratio

Axos Financial'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, Axos Financial 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 Axos Financial shares

There are currently 1.8 million Axos Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Axos Financial's "short interest". This figure is 7.3% down from 2.0 million last month.

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

Axos Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Axos Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Axos Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Axos Financial shares traded daily (recently around 378137.06004141). Axos Financial's SIR currently stands at 4.83. In other words for every 100,000 Axos Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4830 shares are currently held short.

However Axos Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Axos Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Axos Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Axos Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Axos Financial shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0383% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Axos Financial shares, roughly 38 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Axos Financial.

We're not expecting Axos Financial to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Axos Financial's shares ever split?

Axos Financial's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 17 November 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Axos Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Axos Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Axos Financial's share price.

Axos Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Axos Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.5 up to $54.36. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AX.US volatility(beta: 1.76)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Axos Financial's is 1.7568. This would suggest that Axos Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
