Is Flushing Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Flushing Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

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

Flushing Financial Corporation's PEG ratio

Flushing Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3394. 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 Flushing Financial Corporation'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 Flushing Financial Corporation shares

There are currently 468,358 Flushing Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Flushing Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 76.8% up from 264,906 last month.

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

Flushing Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Flushing Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Flushing Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Flushing Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 151572.16828479). Flushing Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.09. In other words for every 100,000 Flushing Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3090 shares are currently held short.

However Flushing Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Flushing Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Flushing Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Flushing Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Flushing Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0159% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Flushing Financial Corporation shares, roughly 16 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 Flushing Financial Corporation.

Flushing Financial Corporation share dividends

50%

Dividend payout ratio: 50% of net profits

Recently Flushing Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 50% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Flushing Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Flushing Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 per share.

Flushing Financial Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Flushing Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 24 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Flushing Financial Corporation's shares ever split?

Flushing Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 December 2003. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Flushing Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Flushing Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Flushing Financial Corporation's share price.

Flushing Financial Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Flushing Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.8803 up to $24.9948. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FFIC.US volatility(beta: 0.9)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 Flushing Financial Corporation's is 0.8988. This would suggest that Flushing Financial Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
