Is MidWestOne Financial Group under- or over-valued?

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

MidWestOne Financial Group's P/E ratio

MidWestOne Financial Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 71x. In other words, MidWestOne Financial Group shares trade at around 71x 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.

MidWestOne Financial Group's PEG ratio

MidWestOne Financial Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.52. 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 MidWestOne Financial Group'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 MidWestOne Financial Group shares

There are currently 98,496 MidWestOne Financial Group shares held short by investors – that's known as MidWestOne Financial Group's "short interest". This figure is 19.8% down from 122,848 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting MidWestOne Financial Group shares can be evaluated.

MidWestOne Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MidWestOne Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MidWestOne Financial Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MidWestOne Financial Group shares traded daily (recently around 55025.698324022). MidWestOne Financial Group's SIR currently stands at 1.79. In other words for every 100,000 MidWestOne Financial Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1790 shares are currently held short.

However MidWestOne Financial Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MidWestOne Financial Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable MidWestOne Financial Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MidWestOne Financial Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MidWestOne Financial Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0063% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MidWestOne Financial Group shares, roughly 6 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 MidWestOne Financial Group.

MidWestOne Financial Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 23.65% of net profits

Recently MidWestOne Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 23.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), MidWestOne Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In MidWestOne Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.88 per share.

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

MidWestOne Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

MidWestOne Financial Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MidWestOne Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.6603 up to $33.68. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MOFG.US volatility(beta: 1.05)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 MidWestOne Financial Group's is 1.0524. This would suggest that MidWestOne Financial Group'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).
