Is Old Second Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Old Second Bancorp's P/E ratio

Old Second 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 9x. In other words, Old Second Bancorp 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.

Old Second Bancorp's PEG ratio

Old Second Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.6. 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 Old Second Bancorp'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 Old Second Bancorp shares

There are currently 412,354 Old Second Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Old Second Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 17.3% up from 351,425 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Old Second Bancorp shares can be evaluated.

Old Second Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Old Second Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Old Second Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Old Second Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 119177.4566474). Old Second Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.46. In other words for every 100,000 Old Second Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3460 shares are currently held short.

However Old Second Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Old Second Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Old Second Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Old Second Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Old Second Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Old Second Bancorp shares, roughly 17 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 Old Second Bancorp.

Old Second Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 9.16% of net profits

Recently Old Second Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 9.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Old Second Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Old Second Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.

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

Old Second Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 8 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Old Second Bancorp's shares ever split?

Old Second Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 July 2004. 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 Old Second Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Old Second Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Old Second Bancorp's share price.

Old Second Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Old Second Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.1177 up to $14.3897. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OSBC.US volatility(beta: 1.44)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 Old Second Bancorp's is 1.4353. This would suggest that Old Second Bancorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
