Is Eagle Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Eagle Bancorp's P/E ratio

Eagle 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 10x. In other words, Eagle Bancorp shares trade at around 10x 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's PEG ratio

Eagle Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.1255. 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'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 shares

There are currently 559,757 Eagle Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Eagle Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% up from 547,100 last month.

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

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

Eagle Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eagle Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eagle Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 143527.43589744). Eagle Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.9. In other words for every 100,000 Eagle Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3900 shares are currently held short.

However Eagle Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eagle Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Eagle Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eagle Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eagle Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0209% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eagle Bancorp shares, roughly 21 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 Eagle Bancorp.

Eagle Bancorp share dividends

22%

Dividend payout ratio: 21.96% of net profits

Recently Eagle Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 21.96% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.17% 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 shareholders could enjoy a 2.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eagle Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.88 per share.

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

Eagle Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 1 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Eagle Bancorp's shares ever split?

Eagle Bancorp's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 29 May 2013. 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 Eagle Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eagle Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Eagle Bancorp's share price.

Eagle Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Eagle Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.5798 up to $47.8155. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EGBN.US volatility(beta: 1.14)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 Eagle Bancorp's is 1.1375. This would suggest that Eagle 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).
