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 59,784 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 31.6% up from 45,422 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 11452.873563218). C-and-F Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.22. In other words for every 100,000 C-and-F Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5220 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 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 C-and-F Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0173% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable C-and-F Financial Corporation shares, roughly 17 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly 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

17%

Dividend payout ratio: 16.98% of net profits

Recently C-and-F Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 16.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.65% 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 3.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In C-and-F Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.52 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 31 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 March 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 $27.9937 up to $52.6511. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CFFI.US volatility(beta: 0.64)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 C-and-F Financial Corporation's is 0.6354. This would suggest that C-and-F Financial Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
