Valuing Live Oak Bancshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Live Oak Bancshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Live Oak Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 47x. In other words, Live Oak Bancshares shares trade at around 47x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 911,859 Live Oak Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Live Oak Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 23.1% down from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Live Oak Bancshares shares can be evaluated.
Live Oak Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Live Oak Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Live Oak Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 331585.09090909). Live Oak Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 2.75. In other words for every 100,000 Live Oak Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2750 shares are currently held short.
However Live Oak Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Live Oak Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Live Oak Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Live Oak Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Live Oak Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0398% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Live Oak Bancshares shares, roughly 40 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 Live Oak Bancshares.

Recently Live Oak Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 13.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Live Oak Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 0.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Live Oak Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.
While Live Oak Bancshares's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Live Oak Bancshares is investing more in its future growth.
Live Oak Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 22 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Live Oak Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.5526 up to $47.5. 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 Live Oak Bancshares's is 1.3467. This would suggest that Live Oak Bancshares's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
