Is Eagle Bancorp Montana under- or over-valued?

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

Eagle Bancorp Montana's P/E ratio

Eagle Bancorp Montana's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Eagle Bancorp Montana shares trade at around 7x 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.

Eagle Bancorp Montana's PEG ratio

Eagle Bancorp Montana's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.61. 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 Eagle Bancorp Montana'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 Eagle Bancorp Montana shares

There are currently 180,222 Eagle Bancorp Montana shares held short by investors – that's known as Eagle Bancorp Montana's "short interest". This figure is 15.3% up from 156,264 last month.

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

Eagle Bancorp Montana's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Eagle Bancorp Montana's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eagle Bancorp Montana shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eagle Bancorp Montana shares traded daily (recently around 24553.40599455). Eagle Bancorp Montana's SIR currently stands at 7.34. In other words for every 100,000 Eagle Bancorp Montana shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7340 shares are currently held short.

However Eagle Bancorp Montana's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eagle Bancorp Montana shares, or, against the total number of tradable Eagle Bancorp Montana shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eagle Bancorp Montana's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eagle Bancorp Montana shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0288% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eagle Bancorp Montana shares, roughly 29 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 Eagle Bancorp Montana.

Eagle Bancorp Montana share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 10.03% of net profits

Recently Eagle Bancorp Montana has paid out, on average, around 10.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eagle Bancorp Montana shareholders could enjoy a 1.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eagle Bancorp Montana's case, that would currently equate to about $0.39 per share.

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

Eagle Bancorp Montana's most recent dividend payout was on 4 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Eagle Bancorp Montana's shares ever split?

Eagle Bancorp Montana's shares were split on a 19:5 basis on 4 April 2010. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 19 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Eagle Bancorp Montana shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 73.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eagle Bancorp Montana shares which in turn could have impacted Eagle Bancorp Montana's share price.

Eagle Bancorp Montana share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Eagle Bancorp Montana's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.7767 up to $26.13. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
