Is C-and-F Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing C-and-F Financial Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of C-and-F Financial Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
C-and-F Financial Corporation's P/E ratio
C-and-F Financial 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 6x. In other words, C-and-F Financial Corporation shares trade at around 6x 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 C-and-F Financial Corporation shares
There are currently 18,990 C-and-F Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as C-and-F Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.1% down from 20,006 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting C-and-F Financial Corporation shares can be evaluated.
C-and-F Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
C-and-F Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of C-and-F Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of C-and-F Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 41282.608695652). C-and-F Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.46. In other words for every 100,000 C-and-F Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 460 shares are currently held short.
However C-and-F Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of C-and-F Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable C-and-F Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case C-and-F Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 C-and-F Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0056% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable C-and-F Financial Corporation shares, roughly 6 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 C-and-F Financial Corporation.

C-and-F Financial Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 24.42% of net profits
Recently C-and-F Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 24.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), C-and-F Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In C-and-F Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.54 per share.
While C-and-F Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that C-and-F Financial Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
C-and-F Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have C-and-F Financial Corporation's shares ever split?
C-and-F Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 July 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your C-and-F Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for C-and-F Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted C-and-F Financial Corporation's share price.
C-and-F Financial Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, C-and-F Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.7754 up to $54.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
