Is Enterprise Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Enterprise Bancorp's P/E ratio

Enterprise 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 11x. In other words, Enterprise Bancorp 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 Enterprise Bancorp shares

There are currently 66,071 Enterprise Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Enterprise Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 6% up from 62,305 last month.

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

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

Enterprise Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Enterprise Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Enterprise Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 13374.696356275). Enterprise Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 4.94. In other words for every 100,000 Enterprise Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4940 shares are currently held short.

However Enterprise Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Enterprise Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Enterprise Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Enterprise Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Enterprise Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0066% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Enterprise Bancorp shares, roughly 7 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 Enterprise Bancorp.

Enterprise Bancorp share dividends

23%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.03% of net profits

Recently Enterprise Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 23.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Enterprise Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Enterprise Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.71 per share.

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

Enterprise Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 31 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Enterprise Bancorp's shares ever split?

Enterprise Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 July 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Enterprise Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Enterprise Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Enterprise Bancorp's share price.

Enterprise Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Enterprise Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.8474 up to $35. 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 Enterprise Bancorp's is 0.4699. This would suggest that Enterprise Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
