Is Guaranty Federal Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

Guaranty Federal Bancshares's P/E ratio

Guaranty Federal Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares trade at around 14x 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 Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares

There are currently 1,960 Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Guaranty Federal Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 74.8% up from 1,121 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares can be evaluated.

Guaranty Federal Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Guaranty Federal Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 1866.6666666667). Guaranty Federal Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 1.05. In other words for every 100,000 Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1050 shares are currently held short.

However Guaranty Federal Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Guaranty Federal Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0008% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares, roughly 1 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 Guaranty Federal Bancshares.

Guaranty Federal Bancshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 34.29% of net profits

Recently Guaranty Federal Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 34.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Guaranty Federal Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Guaranty Federal Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.

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

Guaranty Federal Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 21 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Guaranty Federal Bancshares's shares ever split?

Guaranty Federal Bancshares's shares were split on a 1931:1000 basis on 30 December 1997. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1931 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 48.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Guaranty Federal Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Guaranty Federal Bancshares's share price.

Guaranty Federal Bancshares share price volatility
