Is Newtek Business Services under- or over-valued?

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.

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

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Newtek Business Services shares can be evaluated.

Newtek Business Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Newtek Business Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Newtek Business Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Newtek Business Services shares traded daily (recently around 161267.53246753). Newtek Business Services's SIR currently stands at 2.31. In other words for every 100,000 Newtek Business Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2310 shares are currently held short.

However Newtek Business Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Newtek Business Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Newtek Business Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Newtek Business Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Newtek Business Services shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0174% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Newtek Business Services shares, roughly 17 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 Newtek Business Services.

Newtek Business Services share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 77.59% of net profits

Recently Newtek Business Services has paid out, on average, around 77.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Newtek Business Services shareholders could enjoy a 6.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Newtek Business Services's case, that would currently equate to about $2.113 per share.

Newtek Business Services'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.

Newtek Business Services's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Newtek Business Services's shares ever split?

Newtek Business Services's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 22 October 2014. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Newtek Business Services shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Newtek Business Services shares which in turn could have impacted Newtek Business Services's share price.

Newtek Business Services share price volatility

NEWT.US volatility(beta: 1.19)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 Newtek Business Services's is 1.1855. This would suggest that Newtek Business Services'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).
