Is MVB Financial under- or over-valued?

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

MVB Financial's P/E ratio

MVB Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, MVB Financial shares trade at around 10x 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 MVB Financial shares

There are currently 126,795 MVB Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as MVB Financial's "short interest". This figure is 5.9% up from 119,675 last month.

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

MVB Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MVB Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MVB Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MVB Financial shares traded daily (recently around 30626.811594203). MVB Financial's SIR currently stands at 4.14. In other words for every 100,000 MVB Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4140 shares are currently held short.

However MVB Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MVB Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable MVB Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MVB Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MVB Financial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0128% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MVB Financial shares, roughly 13 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 MVB Financial.

MVB Financial share dividends

16%

Dividend payout ratio: 16.19% of net profits

Recently MVB Financial has paid out, on average, around 16.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), MVB Financial shareholders could enjoy a 1.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In MVB Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.

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

MVB Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 15 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have MVB Financial's shares ever split?

MVB Financial's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 April 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your MVB Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for MVB Financial shares which in turn could have impacted MVB Financial's share price.

MVB Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MVB Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.0853 up to $32.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MVBF.US volatility(beta: 0.99)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 MVB Financial's is 0.9936. This would suggest that MVB Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
