Is Bank of South Carolina Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Bank of South Carolina Corporation's P/E ratio

Bank of South Carolina 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 17x. In other words, Bank of South Carolina Corporation shares trade at around 17x 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.

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

Bank of South Carolina Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bank of South Carolina Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bank of South Carolina Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bank of South Carolina Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3734.1296928328). Bank of South Carolina Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.93. In other words for every 100,000 Bank of South Carolina Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2930 shares are currently held short.

However Bank of South Carolina Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bank of South Carolina Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bank of South Carolina Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bank of South Carolina Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bank of South Carolina Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0027% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bank of South Carolina Corporation shares, roughly 3 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 Bank of South Carolina Corporation.

Bank of South Carolina Corporation share dividends

62%

Dividend payout ratio: 62.34% of net profits

Recently Bank of South Carolina Corporation has paid out, on average, around 62.34% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bank of South Carolina Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bank of South Carolina Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.67 per share.

Bank of South Carolina Corporation'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.

Bank of South Carolina Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Bank of South Carolina Corporation's shares ever split?

Bank of South Carolina Corporation's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 26 April 2018. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bank of South Carolina Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bank of South Carolina Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Bank of South Carolina Corporation's share price.

Bank of South Carolina Corporation share price volatility
