Is Cambridge Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Cambridge Bancorp's P/E ratio

Cambridge 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 11x. In other words, Cambridge Bancorp shares trade at around 11x 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 Cambridge Bancorp shares

There are currently 73,332 Cambridge Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Cambridge Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 17.8% down from 89,255 last month.

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

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

Cambridge Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cambridge Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cambridge Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 14550). Cambridge Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 5.04. In other words for every 100,000 Cambridge Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5040 shares are currently held short.

However Cambridge Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cambridge Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cambridge Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cambridge Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cambridge Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0109% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cambridge Bancorp shares, roughly 11 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 Cambridge Bancorp.

Cambridge Bancorp share dividends

29%

Dividend payout ratio: 28.71% of net profits

Recently Cambridge Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 28.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cambridge Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cambridge Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $2.22 per share.

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

Cambridge Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 18 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Cambridge Bancorp's shares ever split?

Cambridge Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 1 July 2002. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Cambridge Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cambridge Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Cambridge Bancorp's share price.

Cambridge Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cambridge Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $55.9683 up to $88.89. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CATC.US volatility(beta: 0.51)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 Cambridge Bancorp's is 0.5058. This would suggest that Cambridge Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
