Is Luther Burbank Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Luther Burbank Corporation's P/E ratio

Luther Burbank Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Luther Burbank Corporation shares trade at around 14x 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 Luther Burbank Corporation shares

There are currently 125,789 Luther Burbank Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Luther Burbank Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.5% down from 137,488 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Luther Burbank Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Luther Burbank Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Luther Burbank Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Luther Burbank Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Luther Burbank Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 35634.277620397). Luther Burbank Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.53. In other words for every 100,000 Luther Burbank Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3530 shares are currently held short.

However Luther Burbank Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Luther Burbank Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Luther Burbank Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Luther Burbank Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Luther Burbank Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.1368% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Luther Burbank Corporation shares, roughly 137 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 Luther Burbank Corporation.

Luther Burbank Corporation share dividends

26%

Dividend payout ratio: 25.56% of net profits

Recently Luther Burbank Corporation has paid out, on average, around 25.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Luther Burbank Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Luther Burbank Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.23 per share.

While Luther Burbank Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Luther Burbank Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Luther Burbank Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 16 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
