Is Kentucky First Federal Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Kentucky First Federal Bancorp's P/E ratio

Kentucky First Federal 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 33x. In other words, Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares can be evaluated.

Kentucky First Federal Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Kentucky First Federal Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 3849.5614035088). Kentucky First Federal Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.28. In other words for every 100,000 Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2280 shares are currently held short.

However Kentucky First Federal Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kentucky First Federal Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0028% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares, roughly 3 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 Kentucky First Federal Bancorp.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 5.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kentucky First Federal Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

While Kentucky First Federal Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Kentucky First Federal Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.

Have Kentucky First Federal Bancorp's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 57.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kentucky First Federal Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Kentucky First Federal Bancorp's share price.
