Is New York Community Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

New York Community Bancorp's P/E ratio

New York Community 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 10x. In other words, New York Community Bancorp 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 New York Community Bancorp shares

There are currently 47.6 million New York Community Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as New York Community Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% down from 48.7 million last month.

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

New York Community Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

New York Community Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of New York Community Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of New York Community Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 5.1 million). New York Community Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 9.34. In other words for every 100,000 New York Community Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9340 shares are currently held short.

However New York Community Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of New York Community Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable New York Community Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case New York Community Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 New York Community Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1058% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable New York Community Bancorp shares, roughly 106 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 New York Community Bancorp.

New York Community Bancorp share dividends

61%

Dividend payout ratio: 60.71% of net profits

Recently New York Community Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 60.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), New York Community Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 5.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In New York Community Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

New York Community 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.

New York Community Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 16 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have New York Community Bancorp's shares ever split?

New York Community Bancorp's shares were split on a 4:3 basis on 17 February 2004. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your New York Community Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for New York Community Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted New York Community Bancorp's share price.

New York Community Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, New York Community Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.3539 up to $13.02. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NYCB.US volatility(beta: 1.06)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while New York Community Bancorp's is 1.0633. This would suggest that New York Community 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).
