Is Brookline Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Brookline Bancorp's P/E ratio

Brookline 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, Brookline 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.

Brookline Bancorp's PEG ratio

Brookline Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.38. 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 Brookline Bancorp'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 Brookline Bancorp shares

There are currently 1.5 million Brookline Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Brookline Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 20.2% up from 1.2 million last month.

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

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

Brookline Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Brookline Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Brookline Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 319598.92008639). Brookline Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 4.63. In other words for every 100,000 Brookline Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4630 shares are currently held short.

However Brookline Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Brookline Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Brookline Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Brookline Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Brookline Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0195% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Brookline Bancorp 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 Brookline Bancorp.

Brookline Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 35.61% of net profits

Recently Brookline Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 35.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brookline Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brookline Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.47 per share.

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

Brookline Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 26 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Brookline Bancorp's shares ever split?

Brookline Bancorp's shares were split on a 2187:1000 basis on 9 July 2002. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2187 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Brookline Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 54.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Brookline Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Brookline Bancorp's share price.

Brookline Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Brookline Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.944 up to $17.0055. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BRKL.US volatility(beta: 0.73)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
