Is BayFirst Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

BayFirst Financial's P/E ratio

BayFirst 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 4x. In other words, BayFirst Financial shares trade at around 4x 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.

However, BayFirst Financial's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the banks-regional industry or those of similar companies.

BayFirst Financial share dividends

34%

Dividend payout ratio: 33.68% of net profits

Recently BayFirst Financial has paid out, on average, around 33.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BayFirst Financial shareholders could enjoy a 1.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BayFirst Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

While BayFirst Financial's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that BayFirst Financial may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

BayFirst Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 15 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

BayFirst Financial's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Have BayFirst Financial's shares ever split?

BayFirst Financial's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 12 May 2021. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BayFirst Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BayFirst Financial shares which in turn could have impacted BayFirst Financial's share price.

BayFirst Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BayFirst Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.2293 up to $24.6494. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BAFN.US volatility(beta: 1.08)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while BayFirst Financial's is 1.0822. This would suggest that BayFirst Financial's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

To put BayFirst Financial's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
