Is Esquire Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Esquire Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Esquire Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Esquire Financial's P/E ratio
Esquire 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 13x. In other words, Esquire Financial shares trade at around 13x 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.

Esquire Financial share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 8.72% of net profits
Recently Esquire Financial has paid out, on average, around 8.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Esquire Financial shareholders could enjoy a 0.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Esquire Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.18 per share.
While Esquire Financial's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Esquire Financial is investing more in its future growth.
Esquire Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Esquire Financial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Esquire Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.5838 up to $48.055. 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 Esquire Financial's is 0.8277. This would suggest that Esquire Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
