Is Codorus Valley Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Codorus Valley Bancorp's P/E ratio

Codorus Valley Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Codorus Valley Bancorp shares trade at around 21x 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 Codorus Valley Bancorp shares

There are currently 78,990 Codorus Valley Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Codorus Valley Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 8.3% down from 86,144 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Codorus Valley Bancorp shares can be evaluated.

Codorus Valley Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Codorus Valley Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Codorus Valley Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Codorus Valley Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 13410.865874363). Codorus Valley Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 5.89. In other words for every 100,000 Codorus Valley Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5890 shares are currently held short.

However Codorus Valley Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Codorus Valley Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Codorus Valley Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Codorus Valley Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Codorus Valley Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0084% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Codorus Valley Bancorp shares, roughly 8 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 Codorus Valley Bancorp.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Codorus Valley Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Codorus Valley Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

Codorus Valley Bancorp'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.

Have Codorus Valley Bancorp's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Codorus Valley Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Codorus Valley Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Codorus Valley Bancorp's share price.
