Is Midland States Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Midland States Bancorp's P/E ratio

Midland States 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 18x. In other words, Midland States Bancorp shares trade at around 18x 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.

Midland States Bancorp's PEG ratio

Midland States Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Midland States Bancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Midland States Bancorp shares

There are currently 495,936 Midland States Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Midland States Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% up from 479,276 last month.

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

Midland States Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Midland States Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Midland States Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Midland States Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 59679.422382671). Midland States Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 8.31. In other words for every 100,000 Midland States Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8310 shares are currently held short.

However Midland States Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Midland States Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Midland States Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Midland States Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Midland States Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0237% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Midland States Bancorp shares, roughly 24 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Midland States Bancorp.

Midland States Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 50.71% of net profits

Recently Midland States Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 50.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Midland States Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 5.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Midland States Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.07 per share.

Midland States Bancorp'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.

Midland States Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Midland States Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Midland States Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.0935 up to $26.8593. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MSBI.US volatility(beta: 1.04)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
