Is Landmark Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Landmark Bancorp's P/E ratio

Landmark 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 6x. In other words, Landmark Bancorp shares trade at around 6x 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 Landmark Bancorp shares

There are currently 56,841 Landmark Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Landmark Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 6.8% up from 53,225 last month.

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

Landmark Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Landmark Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Landmark Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Landmark Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 11768.322981366). Landmark Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 4.83. In other words for every 100,000 Landmark Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4830 shares are currently held short.

However Landmark Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Landmark Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Landmark Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Landmark Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Landmark Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0144% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Landmark Bancorp 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 Landmark Bancorp.

Landmark Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.7% of net profits

Recently Landmark Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 22.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Landmark Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Landmark Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

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

Landmark Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 3 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Landmark Bancorp's shares ever split?

Landmark Bancorp's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 1 December 2020. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Landmark Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Landmark Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Landmark Bancorp's share price.

Landmark Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Landmark Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.5788 up to $26.9474. 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 Landmark Bancorp's is 0.4429. This would suggest that Landmark Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
