Is Mid-Southern Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Mid-Southern Bancorp's P/E ratio

Mid-Southern 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 40x. In other words, Mid-Southern Bancorp shares trade at around 40x 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.

Shorting Mid-Southern Bancorp shares

There are currently 1,767 Mid-Southern Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Mid-Southern Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 33.9% down from 2,672 last month.

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

Mid-Southern Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Mid-Southern Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mid-Southern Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mid-Southern Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 538.71951219512). Mid-Southern Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.28. In other words for every 100,000 Mid-Southern Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3280 shares are currently held short.

However Mid-Southern Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mid-Southern Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mid-Southern Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mid-Southern Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mid-Southern Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0006% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mid-Southern Bancorp 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 Mid-Southern Bancorp.

Mid-Southern Bancorp share dividends

36%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.69% of net profits

Recently Mid-Southern Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 35.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mid-Southern Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 0.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mid-Southern Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.

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

Mid-Southern Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 28 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Mid-Southern Bancorp's shares ever split?

Mid-Southern Bancorp's shares were split on a 2346:1000 basis on 11 July 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2346 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Mid-Southern Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 57.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mid-Southern Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Mid-Southern Bancorp's share price.

Mid-Southern Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Mid-Southern Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.935 up to $16.5595. 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 Mid-Southern Bancorp's is 0.3304. This would suggest that Mid-Southern Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
