Valuing Bankwell Financial Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bankwell Financial Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Bankwell Financial Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Bankwell Financial Group shares trade at around 16x 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 105,872 Bankwell Financial Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Bankwell Financial Group's "short interest". This figure is 2% up from 103,764 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bankwell Financial Group shares can be evaluated.
Bankwell Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bankwell Financial Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bankwell Financial Group shares traded daily (recently around 10704.954499494). Bankwell Financial Group's SIR currently stands at 9.89. In other words for every 100,000 Bankwell Financial Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9890 shares are currently held short.
However Bankwell Financial Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bankwell Financial Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bankwell Financial Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bankwell Financial Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bankwell Financial Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0161% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bankwell Financial Group shares, roughly 16 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Bankwell Financial Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 48.7% of net profits
Recently Bankwell Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 48.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bankwell Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bankwell Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
While Bankwell Financial Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Bankwell Financial Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Bankwell Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 23 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Bankwell Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.7453 up to $28.4748. 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 Bankwell Financial Group's is 0.7711. This would suggest that Bankwell Financial Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
