Is Glen Burnie Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Glen Burnie Bancorp's P/E ratio

Glen Burnie 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 20x. In other words, Glen Burnie Bancorp shares trade at around 20x 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 Glen Burnie Bancorp shares

There are currently 526 Glen Burnie Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Glen Burnie Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 267.8% up from 143 last month.

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

Glen Burnie Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Glen Burnie Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Glen Burnie Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Glen Burnie Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 3287.5). Glen Burnie Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 0.16. In other words for every 100,000 Glen Burnie Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 160 shares are currently held short.

However Glen Burnie Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Glen Burnie Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Glen Burnie Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Glen Burnie Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Glen Burnie Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0002% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Glen Burnie Bancorp shares, roughly 0 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 Glen Burnie Bancorp.

Glen Burnie Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 81.22% of net profits

Recently Glen Burnie Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 81.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.42% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Glen Burnie Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.42% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Glen Burnie Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

Glen Burnie Bancorp'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.

Glen Burnie Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 8 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Glen Burnie Bancorp's shares ever split?

Glen Burnie Bancorp's shares were split on a 120:100 basis on 10 January 2008. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 120 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Glen Burnie Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 16.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Glen Burnie Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Glen Burnie Bancorp's share price.
