Valuing Citizens-and-Northern Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Citizens-and-Northern 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 12x. In other words, Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares trade at around 12x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 173,988 Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 14.2% up from 152,294 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 33915.789473684). Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.13. In other words for every 100,000 Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5130 shares are currently held short.
However Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0113% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares, roughly 11 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 Citizens-and-Northern Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 68.35% of net profits
Recently Citizens-and-Northern Corporation has paid out, on average, around 68.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.
Citizens-and-Northern Corporation'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.
Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 July 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's shares were split on a 101:100 basis on 28 December 2007. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 101 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Citizens-and-Northern Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Citizens-and-Northern Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.92 up to $29.064. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
