Is Elmira Savings Bank under- or over-valued?

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

Elmira Savings Bank's P/E ratio

Elmira Savings Bank'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, Elmira Savings Bank 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 Elmira Savings Bank shares

There are currently 139 Elmira Savings Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as Elmira Savings Bank's "short interest". This figure is 78.5% down from 648 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Elmira Savings Bank shares can be evaluated.

Elmira Savings Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Elmira Savings Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Elmira Savings Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Elmira Savings Bank shares traded daily (recently around 1985.7142857143). Elmira Savings Bank's SIR currently stands at 0.07. In other words for every 100,000 Elmira Savings Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 70 shares are currently held short.

However Elmira Savings Bank's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Elmira Savings Bank shares, or, against the total number of tradable Elmira Savings Bank shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Elmira Savings Bank's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Elmira Savings Bank shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Elmira Savings Bank shares, roughly 0 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 Elmira Savings Bank.

Elmira Savings Bank share dividends

48%

Dividend payout ratio: 47.6% of net profits

Recently Elmira Savings Bank has paid out, on average, around 47.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Elmira Savings Bank shareholders could enjoy a 4.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Elmira Savings Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

While Elmira Savings Bank's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Elmira Savings Bank may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Elmira Savings Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 11 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Elmira Savings Bank's shares ever split?

Elmira Savings Bank's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 4 December 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 Elmira Savings Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Elmira Savings Bank shares which in turn could have impacted Elmira Savings Bank's share price.

Elmira Savings Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Elmira Savings Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.9378 up to $16. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
