Is Camden National Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Camden National Corporation's P/E ratio

Camden National Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Camden National Corporation shares trade at around 9x 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 Camden National Corporation shares

There are currently 351,160 Camden National Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Camden National Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.6% down from 384,404 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Camden National Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Camden National Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Camden National Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Camden National Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Camden National Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 31750.452079566). Camden National Corporation's SIR currently stands at 11.06. In other words for every 100,000 Camden National Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11060 shares are currently held short.

However Camden National Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Camden National Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Camden National Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Camden National Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Camden National Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0241% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Camden National Corporation shares, roughly 24 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Camden National Corporation.

Camden National Corporation share dividends

35%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.48% of net profits

Recently Camden National Corporation has paid out, on average, around 35.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Camden National Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Camden National Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.

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

Camden National Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Camden National Corporation's shares ever split?

Camden National Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 3 October 2016. 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 Camden National Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Camden National Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Camden National Corporation's share price.

Camden National Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Camden National Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.2224 up to $47.0163. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CAC.US volatility(beta: 0.98)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
