Is Community Trust Bancorp under- or over-valued?
Valuing Community Trust Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Community Trust Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Community Trust Bancorp's P/E ratio
Community Trust 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 9x. In other words, Community Trust Bancorp 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.
Community Trust Bancorp's PEG ratio
Community Trust Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.55. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Community Trust Bancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Community Trust Bancorp shares
There are currently 127,865 Community Trust Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Community Trust Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 13% down from 146,968 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Community Trust Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Community Trust Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Community Trust Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Community Trust Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Community Trust Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 52189.795918367). Community Trust Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.45. In other words for every 100,000 Community Trust Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2450 shares are currently held short.
However Community Trust Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Community Trust Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Community Trust Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Community Trust Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Community Trust Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0084% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Community Trust Bancorp shares, roughly 8 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 Community Trust Bancorp.

Community Trust Bancorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 35.73% of net profits
Recently Community Trust Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 35.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Community Trust Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Community Trust Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.54 per share.
While Community Trust Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Community Trust Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Community Trust Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Community Trust Bancorp's shares ever split?
Community Trust Bancorp's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 12 May 2014. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Community Trust Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Community Trust Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Community Trust Bancorp's share price.
Community Trust Bancorp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Community Trust Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.9815 up to $47.1115. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
