Is CBTX under- or over-valued?

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

CBTX's P/E ratio

CBTX's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, CBTX shares trade at around 31x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Shorting CBTX shares

There are currently 367,263 CBTX shares held short by investors – that's known as CBTX's "short interest". This figure is 24.8% up from 294,314 last month.

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

CBTX's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CBTX's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CBTX shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CBTX shares traded daily (recently around 89358.394160584). CBTX's SIR currently stands at 4.11. In other words for every 100,000 CBTX shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4110 shares are currently held short.

However CBTX's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CBTX shares, or, against the total number of tradable CBTX shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CBTX's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CBTX shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0214% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CBTX shares, roughly 21 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 CBTX.

CBTX share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 40.57% of net profits

Recently CBTX has paid out, on average, around 40.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CBTX shareholders could enjoy a 1.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CBTX's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

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

CBTX's most recent dividend payout was on 14 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

CBTX share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CBTX's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.6247 up to $32.97. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CBTX.US volatility(beta: 1.05)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 CBTX's is 1.0489. This would suggest that CBTX'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).
