Is BankUnited under- or over-valued?
Valuing BankUnited stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BankUnited's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BankUnited's P/E ratio
BankUnited'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, BankUnited 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.
BankUnited's PEG ratio
BankUnited's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.05. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into BankUnited's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting BankUnited shares
There are currently 1.9 million BankUnited shares held short by investors – that's known as BankUnited's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% down from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BankUnited shares can be evaluated.
BankUnited's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
BankUnited's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BankUnited shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BankUnited shares traded daily (recently around 614353.97350993). BankUnited's SIR currently stands at 3.02. In other words for every 100,000 BankUnited shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3020 shares are currently held short.
However BankUnited's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BankUnited shares, or, against the total number of tradable BankUnited shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BankUnited's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BankUnited shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0201% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BankUnited shares, roughly 20 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 BankUnited.

BankUnited share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 24.71% of net profits
Recently BankUnited has paid out, on average, around 24.71% 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), BankUnited shareholders could enjoy a 2.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BankUnited's case, that would currently equate to about $0.92 per share.
While BankUnited's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that BankUnited is investing more in its future growth.
BankUnited's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
BankUnited share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, BankUnited's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.1501 up to $50.1544. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while BankUnited's is 1.4004. This would suggest that BankUnited's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
