Is Northeast Bank under- or over-valued?

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

Northeast Bank's P/E ratio

Northeast Bank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Northeast Bank shares trade at around 7x 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 Northeast Bank shares

There are currently 145,561 Northeast Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as Northeast Bank's "short interest". This figure is 4.7% down from 152,725 last month.

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

Northeast Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Northeast Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Northeast Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Northeast Bank shares traded daily (recently around 28429.8828125). Northeast Bank's SIR currently stands at 5.12. In other words for every 100,000 Northeast Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5120 shares are currently held short.

However Northeast Bank's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Northeast Bank shares, or, against the total number of tradable Northeast Bank shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Northeast Bank's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Northeast Bank shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0198% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Northeast Bank shares, roughly 20 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 Northeast Bank.

Northeast Bank share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.33% of net profits

Recently Northeast Bank has paid out, on average, around 1.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Northeast Bank shareholders could enjoy a 0.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Northeast Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.

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

Northeast Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 24 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Northeast Bank's shares ever split?

Northeast Bank's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 December 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Northeast Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Northeast Bank shares which in turn could have impacted Northeast Bank's share price.

Northeast Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Northeast Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.1897 up to $23.9284. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NBN.US volatility(beta: 1.77)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 Northeast Bank's is 1.7666. This would suggest that Northeast Bank's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
