Is Ohio Valley Banc under- or over-valued?
Valuing Ohio Valley Banc stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ohio Valley Banc's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ohio Valley Banc's P/E ratio
Ohio Valley Banc's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Ohio Valley Banc shares trade at around 9x 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 Ohio Valley Banc shares
There are currently 23,334 Ohio Valley Banc shares held short by investors – that's known as Ohio Valley Banc's "short interest". This figure is 29.2% down from 32,947 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ohio Valley Banc shares can be evaluated.
Ohio Valley Banc's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Ohio Valley Banc's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ohio Valley Banc shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ohio Valley Banc shares traded daily (recently around 40936.842105263). Ohio Valley Banc's SIR currently stands at 0.57. In other words for every 100,000 Ohio Valley Banc shares traded daily on the market, roughly 570 shares are currently held short.
However Ohio Valley Banc's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ohio Valley Banc shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ohio Valley Banc shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ohio Valley Banc's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ohio Valley Banc shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0055% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ohio Valley Banc shares, roughly 6 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 Ohio Valley Banc.

Ohio Valley Banc share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 28.61% of net profits
Recently Ohio Valley Banc has paid out, on average, around 28.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ohio Valley Banc shareholders could enjoy a 3.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ohio Valley Banc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 per share.
While Ohio Valley Banc's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Ohio Valley Banc may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Ohio Valley Banc's most recent dividend payout was on 9 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Ohio Valley Banc's shares ever split?
Ohio Valley Banc's shares were split on a 125:100 basis on 10 May 2005. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 125 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ohio Valley Banc shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ohio Valley Banc shares which in turn could have impacted Ohio Valley Banc's share price.
Ohio Valley Banc share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Ohio Valley Banc's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.1411 up to $32.4022. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
