Valuing Boston Private Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Boston Private Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Boston Private 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 16x. In other words, Boston Private Financial 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.
Boston Private Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.66. 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 Boston Private Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.4 million Boston Private Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Boston Private Financial's "short interest". This figure is 40.3% up from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Boston Private Financial shares can be evaluated.
Boston Private Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Boston Private Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Boston Private Financial shares traded daily (recently around 539518.57798165). Boston Private Financial's SIR currently stands at 4.36. In other words for every 100,000 Boston Private Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4360 shares are currently held short.
However Boston Private Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Boston Private Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Boston Private Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Boston Private Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Boston Private Financial shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.039% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Boston Private Financial shares, roughly 39 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 Boston Private Financial.

Dividend payout ratio: 73.47% of net profits
Recently Boston Private Financial has paid out, on average, around 73.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Boston Private Financial shareholders could enjoy a 2.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Boston Private Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.
Boston Private Financial'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.
Boston Private Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 20 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Boston Private Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.9473 up to $12.4575. 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 Boston Private Financial's is 1.1228. This would suggest that Boston Private 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).
