Is Norwood Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Norwood Financial's P/E ratio

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

There are currently 62,479 Norwood Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Norwood Financial's "short interest". This figure is 11.1% up from 56,248 last month.

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

Norwood Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Norwood Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Norwood Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Norwood Financial shares traded daily (recently around 21107.77027027). Norwood Financial's SIR currently stands at 2.96. In other words for every 100,000 Norwood Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2960 shares are currently held short.

However Norwood Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Norwood Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Norwood Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Norwood Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Norwood Financial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0089% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Norwood Financial shares, roughly 9 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 Norwood Financial.

Norwood Financial share dividends

46%

Dividend payout ratio: 46.44% of net profits

Recently Norwood Financial has paid out, on average, around 46.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Norwood Financial shareholders could enjoy a 4.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Norwood Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.01 per share.

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

Norwood Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 2 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Norwood Financial's shares ever split?

Norwood Financial's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 17 September 2017. 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 Norwood Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Norwood Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Norwood Financial's share price.

Norwood Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Norwood Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.5781 up to $29.583. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NWFL.US volatility(beta: 0.56)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 Norwood Financial's is 0.5615. This would suggest that Norwood Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
