Is Lake Shore Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Lake Shore Bancorp's P/E ratio

Lake Shore 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 16x. In other words, Lake Shore Bancorp shares trade at around 16x 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 Lake Shore Bancorp shares

There are currently 6,134 Lake Shore Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Lake Shore Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 81.8% up from 3,374 last month.

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

Lake Shore Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lake Shore Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lake Shore Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lake Shore Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 2463.453815261). Lake Shore Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.49. In other words for every 100,000 Lake Shore Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2490 shares are currently held short.

However Lake Shore Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lake Shore Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lake Shore Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lake Shore Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lake Shore Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0035% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lake Shore Bancorp shares, roughly 4 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 Lake Shore Bancorp.

Lake Shore Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 67.87% of net profits

Recently Lake Shore Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 67.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lake Shore Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lake Shore Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.51 per share.

Lake Shore Bancorp'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.

Lake Shore Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 19 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Lake Shore Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lake Shore Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.1995 up to $15.5892. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LSBK.US volatility(beta: 0.62)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
