Is Northern Trust Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Northern Trust Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Northern Trust Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Northern Trust Corporation's P/E ratio
Northern Trust Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Northern Trust Corporation shares trade at around 19x 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.
Northern Trust Corporation's PEG ratio
Northern Trust Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4519. 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 Northern Trust Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Northern Trust Corporation shares
There are currently 3.1 million Northern Trust Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Northern Trust Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18.8% up from 2.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Northern Trust Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Northern Trust Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Northern Trust Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Northern Trust Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Northern Trust Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 860329.72222222). Northern Trust Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.6. In other words for every 100,000 Northern Trust Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3600 shares are currently held short.
However Northern Trust Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Northern Trust Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Northern Trust Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Northern Trust Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Northern Trust Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Northern Trust Corporation shares, roughly 15 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 Northern Trust Corporation.

Northern Trust Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.51% of net profits
Recently Northern Trust Corporation has paid out, on average, around 37.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Northern Trust Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Northern Trust Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.8 per share.
While Northern Trust Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Northern Trust Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Northern Trust Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Northern Trust Corporation's shares ever split?
Northern Trust Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 December 1999. 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 Northern Trust Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Northern Trust Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Northern Trust Corporation's share price.
Northern Trust Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Northern Trust Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $72.5362 up to $122.3736. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Northern Trust Corporation's is 1.093. This would suggest that Northern Trust Corporation'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).
