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.
Newtek Business Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.28. 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 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.

Recently Newtek Business Services has paid out, on average, around 89.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.29% 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 11.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Newtek Business Services's case, that would currently equate to about $2.05 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 30 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Newtek Business Services's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 23 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.
Over the last 12 months, Newtek Business Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.9645 up to $20.4414. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
