Is Emclaire Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Emclaire Financial's P/E ratio

Emclaire Financial'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, Emclaire Financial 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.

Shorting Emclaire Financial shares

There are currently 2,461 Emclaire Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Emclaire Financial's "short interest". This figure is 25.2% up from 1,966 last month.

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

Emclaire Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Emclaire Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Emclaire Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Emclaire Financial shares traded daily (recently around 1651.677852349). Emclaire Financial's SIR currently stands at 1.49. In other words for every 100,000 Emclaire Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1490 shares are currently held short.

However Emclaire Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Emclaire Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Emclaire Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Emclaire Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Emclaire Financial shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0011% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Emclaire Financial shares, roughly 1 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 Emclaire Financial.

Emclaire Financial share dividends

40%

Dividend payout ratio: 39.54% of net profits

Recently Emclaire Financial has paid out, on average, around 39.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Emclaire Financial shareholders could enjoy a 4.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Emclaire Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

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

Emclaire Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 16 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
