Valuing Central Pacific Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Central Pacific Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Central Pacific Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Central Pacific Financial shares trade at around 14x 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.
Central Pacific Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.48. 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 Central Pacific Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 423,344 Central Pacific Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Central Pacific Financial's "short interest". This figure is 6.1% down from 450,766 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Central Pacific Financial shares can be evaluated.
Central Pacific Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Central Pacific Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Central Pacific Financial shares traded daily (recently around 177131.38075314). Central Pacific Financial's SIR currently stands at 2.39. In other words for every 100,000 Central Pacific Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2390 shares are currently held short.
However Central Pacific Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Central Pacific Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Central Pacific Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Central Pacific Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Central Pacific Financial shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0211% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Central Pacific Financial 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 Central Pacific Financial.

Dividend payout ratio: 66.67% of net profits
Recently Central Pacific Financial has paid out, on average, around 66.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Central Pacific Financial shareholders could enjoy a 4.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Central Pacific Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.92 per share.
Central Pacific Financial's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Central Pacific Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Central Pacific Financial's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 3 February 2011. So if you had owned 20 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Central Pacific Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Central Pacific Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Central Pacific Financial's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Central Pacific Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.9093 up to $28.5405. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Central Pacific Financial's is 1.2803. This would suggest that Central Pacific Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
