Is Chemung Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Chemung Financial Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Chemung Financial Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Chemung Financial Corporation's P/E ratio
Chemung 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 9x. In other words, Chemung Financial Corporation shares trade at around 9x 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 Chemung Financial Corporation shares
There are currently 30,101 Chemung Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Chemung Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.2% up from 28,612 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Chemung Financial Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Chemung Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Chemung Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chemung Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chemung Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 43624.637681159). Chemung Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.69. In other words for every 100,000 Chemung Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 690 shares are currently held short.
However Chemung Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chemung Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chemung Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chemung Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chemung Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0098% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chemung Financial Corporation shares, roughly 10 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 Chemung Financial Corporation.

Chemung Financial Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 21.21% of net profits
Recently Chemung Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 21.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chemung Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chemung Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.09 per share.
While Chemung Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Chemung Financial Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Chemung 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 15 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Chemung Financial Corporation's shares ever split?
Chemung Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 June 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 Chemung Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chemung Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Chemung Financial Corporation's share price.
Chemung Financial Corporation share price volatility
