Is Great Southern Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Great Southern Bancorp's P/E ratio

Great Southern 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 10x. In other words, Great Southern Bancorp shares trade at around 10x 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.

Great Southern Bancorp's PEG ratio

Great Southern Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.62. 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 Great Southern Bancorp'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 Great Southern Bancorp shares

There are currently 119,623 Great Southern Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Great Southern Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% down from 122,849 last month.

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

Great Southern Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Great Southern Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Great Southern Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Great Southern Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 45140.754716981). Great Southern Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.65. In other words for every 100,000 Great Southern Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2650 shares are currently held short.

However Great Southern Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Great Southern Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Great Southern Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Great Southern Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Great Southern Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0114% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Great Southern Bancorp shares, roughly 11 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 Great Southern Bancorp.

Great Southern Bancorp share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.88% of net profits

Recently Great Southern Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 26.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Great Southern Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Great Southern Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.36 per share.

While Great Southern Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Great Southern Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Great Southern Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 12 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Great Southern Bancorp's shares ever split?

Great Southern Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 June 2004. 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 Great Southern Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Great Southern Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Great Southern Bancorp's share price.

Great Southern Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Great Southern Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.348 up to $59.809. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GSBC.US volatility(beta: 0.98)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
