Is Merchants Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Merchants Bancorp's P/E ratio

Merchants 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, Merchants 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 Merchants Bancorp shares

There are currently 139,512 Merchants Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Merchants Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 23.6% up from 112,912 last month.

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

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

Merchants Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Merchants Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Merchants Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 48780.41958042). Merchants Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.86. In other words for every 100,000 Merchants Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2860 shares are currently held short.

However Merchants Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Merchants Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Merchants Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Merchants Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Merchants Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0082% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Merchants Bancorp shares, roughly 8 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 Merchants Bancorp.

Merchants Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 4.77% of net profits

Recently Merchants Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 4.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Merchants Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 0.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Merchants Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.

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

Merchants Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Merchants Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Merchants Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.6524 up to $45.4607. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MBIN.US volatility(beta: 1.02)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Merchants Bancorp's is 1.0187. This would suggest that Merchants Bancorp's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
