Is Northrim BanCorp under- or over-valued?

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

Northrim BanCorp's P/E ratio

Northrim 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 7x. In other words, Northrim BanCorp 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 Northrim BanCorp shares

There are currently 80,719 Northrim BanCorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Northrim BanCorp's "short interest". This figure is 10.5% down from 90,208 last month.

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

Northrim BanCorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Northrim BanCorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Northrim BanCorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Northrim BanCorp shares traded daily (recently around 29567.399267399). Northrim BanCorp's SIR currently stands at 2.73. In other words for every 100,000 Northrim BanCorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2730 shares are currently held short.

However Northrim BanCorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Northrim BanCorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Northrim BanCorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Northrim BanCorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Northrim BanCorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0132% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Northrim BanCorp shares, roughly 13 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 Northrim BanCorp.

Northrim BanCorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 27.01% of net profits

Recently Northrim BanCorp has paid out, on average, around 27.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Northrim BanCorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Northrim BanCorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.38 per share.

While Northrim BanCorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Northrim BanCorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Northrim BanCorp's most recent dividend payout was on 24 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Northrim BanCorp's shares ever split?

Northrim BanCorp's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 19 September 2007. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Northrim BanCorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Northrim BanCorp shares which in turn could have impacted Northrim BanCorp's share price.

Northrim BanCorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Northrim BanCorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.7298 up to $37.3193. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NRIM.US volatility(beta: 0.75)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 Northrim BanCorp's is 0.7529. This would suggest that Northrim BanCorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
