Is Bridge Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Bridge Bancorp's P/E ratio

Bridge Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Bridge Bancorp shares trade at around 12x 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.

Shorting Bridge Bancorp shares

There are currently 537,795 Bridge Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Bridge Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 10.5% down from 601,092 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bridge Bancorp shares can be evaluated.

Bridge Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bridge Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bridge Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bridge Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 106494.05940594). Bridge Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 5.05. In other words for every 100,000 Bridge Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5050 shares are currently held short.

However Bridge Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bridge Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bridge Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bridge Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bridge Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0381% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bridge Bancorp shares, roughly 38 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 Bridge Bancorp.

Bridge Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 45.28% of net profits

Recently Bridge Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 45.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bridge Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bridge Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.96 per share.

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

Bridge Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 11 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Bridge Bancorp's shares ever split?

Bridge Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 July 2004. 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 Bridge Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bridge Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Bridge Bancorp's share price.

Bridge Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bridge Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.24 up to $28.66. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BDGE.US volatility(beta: 1.12)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 Bridge Bancorp's is 1.1218. This would suggest that Bridge Bancorp'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).
