Is Colony Bankcorp under- or over-valued?

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

Colony Bankcorp's P/E ratio

Colony Bankcorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Colony Bankcorp shares trade at around 11x 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 Colony Bankcorp shares

There are currently 37,134 Colony Bankcorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Colony Bankcorp's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% down from 37,218 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Colony Bankcorp shares can be evaluated.

Colony Bankcorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Colony Bankcorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Colony Bankcorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Colony Bankcorp shares traded daily (recently around 36405.882352941). Colony Bankcorp's SIR currently stands at 1.02. In other words for every 100,000 Colony Bankcorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1020 shares are currently held short.

However Colony Bankcorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Colony Bankcorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Colony Bankcorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Colony Bankcorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Colony Bankcorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0032% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Colony Bankcorp shares, roughly 3 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 Colony Bankcorp.

Colony Bankcorp share dividends

22%

Dividend payout ratio: 22.03% of net profits

Recently Colony Bankcorp has paid out, on average, around 22.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Colony Bankcorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Colony Bankcorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.405 per share.

While Colony Bankcorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Colony Bankcorp is investing more in its future growth.

Colony Bankcorp's most recent dividend payout was on 16 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Colony Bankcorp's shares ever split?

Colony Bankcorp's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 16 May 2005. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Colony Bankcorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Colony Bankcorp shares which in turn could have impacted Colony Bankcorp's share price.

Colony Bankcorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Colony Bankcorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.898 up to $19.59. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CBAN.US volatility(beta: 0.58)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 Colony Bankcorp's is 0.5804. This would suggest that Colony Bankcorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
