Is Manhattan Bridge Capital under- or over-valued?

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

Manhattan Bridge Capital's P/E ratio

Manhattan Bridge Capital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Manhattan Bridge Capital shares trade at around 11x 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 Manhattan Bridge Capital shares

There are currently 7,931 Manhattan Bridge Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as Manhattan Bridge Capital's "short interest". This figure is 23.4% down from 10,360 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Manhattan Bridge Capital shares can be evaluated.

Manhattan Bridge Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Manhattan Bridge Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Manhattan Bridge Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Manhattan Bridge Capital shares traded daily (recently around 31724). Manhattan Bridge Capital's SIR currently stands at 0.25. In other words for every 100,000 Manhattan Bridge Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 250 shares are currently held short.

However Manhattan Bridge Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Manhattan Bridge Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable Manhattan Bridge Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Manhattan Bridge Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Manhattan Bridge Capital shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0009% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Manhattan Bridge Capital shares, roughly 1 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 Manhattan Bridge Capital.

Dividend payout ratio: 91.3% of net profits

Recently Manhattan Bridge Capital has paid out, on average, around 91.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Manhattan Bridge Capital shareholders could enjoy a 8.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Manhattan Bridge Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.44 per share.

Manhattan Bridge Capital'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.
