Valuing Kearny Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kearny Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kearny Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Kearny Financial shares trade at around 18x 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.
Kearny Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 15.99. 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 Kearny Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.1 million Kearny Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Kearny Financial's "short interest". This figure is 5.2% up from 1.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kearny Financial shares can be evaluated.
Kearny Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kearny Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kearny Financial shares traded daily (recently around 294358.3106267). Kearny Financial's SIR currently stands at 3.67. In other words for every 100,000 Kearny Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3670 shares are currently held short.
However Kearny Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kearny Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kearny Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kearny Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kearny Financial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0141% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kearny Financial shares, roughly 14 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 Kearny Financial.

Dividend payout ratio: 54.1% of net profits
Recently Kearny Financial has paid out, on average, around 54.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kearny Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kearny Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.
Kearny Financial'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.
Kearny Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 17 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Kearny Financial's shares were split on 19 May 2015.
Over the last 12 months, Kearny Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.8562 up to $11.66. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Kearny Financial's is 0.7647. This would suggest that Kearny Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
