Is Level One Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Level One Bancorp's P/E ratio

Level One 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 10x. In other words, Level One Bancorp shares trade at around 10x 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 Level One Bancorp shares

There are currently 149,801 Level One Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Level One Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 22.1% up from 122,639 last month.

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

Level One Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Level One Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Level One Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Level One Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 28975.048355899). Level One Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 5.17. In other words for every 100,000 Level One Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5170 shares are currently held short.

However Level One Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Level One Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Level One Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Level One Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Level One Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0366% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Level One Bancorp shares, roughly 37 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Level One Bancorp.

Level One Bancorp share dividends

8%

Dividend payout ratio: 8.06% of net profits

Recently Level One Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 8.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Level One Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 0.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Level One Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

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

Level One Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 14 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
