Is International Bancshares Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

International Bancshares Corporation's P/E ratio

International Bancshares 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 14x. In other words, International Bancshares Corporation 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 International Bancshares Corporation shares

There are currently 546,666 International Bancshares Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as International Bancshares Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.7% up from 498,282 last month.

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

International Bancshares Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

International Bancshares Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of International Bancshares Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of International Bancshares Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 175213.46153846). International Bancshares Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.12. In other words for every 100,000 International Bancshares Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3120 shares are currently held short.

However International Bancshares Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of International Bancshares Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable International Bancshares Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case International Bancshares Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 International Bancshares Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0119% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable International Bancshares Corporation shares, roughly 12 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 International Bancshares Corporation.

International Bancshares Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 43.58% of net profits

Recently International Bancshares Corporation has paid out, on average, around 43.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), International Bancshares Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In International Bancshares Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.1 per share.

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

International Bancshares Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 5 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have International Bancshares Corporation's shares ever split?

International Bancshares Corporation's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 17 May 2007. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your International Bancshares Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for International Bancshares Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted International Bancshares Corporation's share price.

International Bancshares Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, International Bancshares Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.9854 up to $41.8823. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
