Is CF Bankshares under- or over-valued?

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

CF Bankshares's P/E ratio

CF Bankshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, CF Bankshares shares trade at around 4x 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 CF Bankshares shares

There are currently 808 CF Bankshares shares held short by investors – that's known as CF Bankshares's "short interest". This figure is 82% down from 4,498 last month.

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

CF Bankshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CF Bankshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CF Bankshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CF Bankshares shares traded daily (recently around 10100). CF Bankshares's SIR currently stands at 0.08. In other words for every 100,000 CF Bankshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 80 shares are currently held short.

However CF Bankshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CF Bankshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable CF Bankshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CF Bankshares's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CF Bankshares shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0002% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CF Bankshares shares, roughly 0 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 CF Bankshares.

CF Bankshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 2.01% of net profits

Recently CF Bankshares has paid out, on average, around 2.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CF Bankshares shareholders could enjoy a 0.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CF Bankshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.03 per share.

While CF Bankshares's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that CF Bankshares is investing more in its future growth.

CF Bankshares's most recent dividend payout was on 2 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have CF Bankshares's shares ever split?

CF Bankshares's shares were split on a 181:1000 basis on 20 August 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 181 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CF Bankshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 452.5% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for CF Bankshares shares which in turn could have impacted CF Bankshares's share price.

CF Bankshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CF Bankshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.5069 up to $22.07. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
