Is Enterprise Financial Services under- or over-valued?

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

Enterprise Financial Services's P/E ratio

Enterprise Financial Services's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Enterprise Financial Services shares trade at around 15x 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.

Enterprise Financial Services's PEG ratio

Enterprise Financial Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9. 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 Enterprise Financial Services'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 Enterprise Financial Services shares

There are currently 540,038 Enterprise Financial Services shares held short by investors – that's known as Enterprise Financial Services's "short interest". This figure is 15.8% down from 641,106 last month.

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

Enterprise Financial Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Enterprise Financial Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Enterprise Financial Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Enterprise Financial Services shares traded daily (recently around 128580.47619048). Enterprise Financial Services's SIR currently stands at 4.2. In other words for every 100,000 Enterprise Financial Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4200 shares are currently held short.

However Enterprise Financial Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Enterprise Financial Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Enterprise Financial Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Enterprise Financial Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Enterprise Financial Services shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0189% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Enterprise Financial Services shares, roughly 19 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 Financial Services.

Enterprise Financial Services share dividends

23%

Dividend payout ratio: 22.93% of net profits

Recently Enterprise Financial Services has paid out, on average, around 22.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.49% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Enterprise Financial Services shareholders could enjoy a 1.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Enterprise Financial Services's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

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

Enterprise Financial Services's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Enterprise Financial Services share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Enterprise Financial Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.2494 up to $52. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EFSC.US volatility(beta: 1.43)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 Enterprise Financial Services's is 1.4313. This would suggest that Enterprise Financial Services's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
