Valuing Bank OZK stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bank OZK's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Bank OZK's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Bank OZK shares trade at around 11x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 10.9 million Bank OZK shares held short by investors – that's known as Bank OZK's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% up from 10.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bank OZK shares can be evaluated.
Bank OZK's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bank OZK shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bank OZK shares traded daily (recently around 769321.36812412). Bank OZK's SIR currently stands at 14.18. In other words for every 100,000 Bank OZK shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14180 shares are currently held short.
However Bank OZK's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bank OZK shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bank OZK shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bank OZK's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bank OZK shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0898% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bank OZK shares, roughly 90 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 Bank OZK.

Dividend payout ratio: 52.05% of net profits
Recently Bank OZK has paid out, on average, around 52.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bank OZK shareholders could enjoy a 4.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bank OZK's case, that would currently equate to about $1.1 per share.
Bank OZK'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 OZK's most recent dividend payout was on 19 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Bank OZK's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 June 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bank OZK shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bank OZK shares which in turn could have impacted Bank OZK's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Bank OZK's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.2 up to $31.76. 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 Bank OZK's is 1.9978. This would suggest that Bank OZK's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
