Valuing Dime Community Bancshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Dime Community Bancshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Dime Community Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Dime Community Bancshares shares trade at around 13x 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.
Dime Community Bancshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 13.64. 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 Dime Community Bancshares's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.2 million Dime Community Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Dime Community Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 184.2% up from 418,320 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dime Community Bancshares shares can be evaluated.
Dime Community Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dime Community Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dime Community Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 143732.52720677). Dime Community Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 8.27. In other words for every 100,000 Dime Community Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8270 shares are currently held short.
However Dime Community Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dime Community Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dime Community Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dime Community Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dime Community Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0557% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dime Community Bancshares shares, roughly 56 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 Dime Community Bancshares.

Dividend payout ratio: 41.76% of net profits
Recently Dime Community Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 41.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dime Community Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 3.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dime Community Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
While Dime Community Bancshares's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Dime Community Bancshares may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Dime Community Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 13 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Dime Community Bancshares's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 17 March 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dime Community Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dime Community Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Dime Community Bancshares's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Dime Community Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.4684 up to $20.2421. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Dime Community Bancshares's is 1.1055. This would suggest that Dime Community Bancshares'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).
