Is County Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

County Bancorp's P/E ratio

County 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 11x. In other words, County Bancorp 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 County Bancorp shares

There are currently 172,658 County Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as County Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 9.6% up from 157,483 last month.

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

County Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

County Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of County Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of County Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 11479.920212766). County Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 15.04. In other words for every 100,000 County Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15040 shares are currently held short.

However County Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of County Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable County Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case County Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 County Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0373% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable County Bancorp shares, roughly 37 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against County Bancorp.

County Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 16.14% of net profits

Recently County Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 16.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), County Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In County Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.

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

County Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 18 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

County Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, County Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.8902 up to $26.46. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ICBK.US volatility(beta: 1)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 County Bancorp's is 1.0017. This would suggest that County Bancorp's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
