Is Origin Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Origin Bancorp's P/E ratio

Origin 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 22x. In other words, Origin Bancorp shares trade at around 22x 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 Origin Bancorp shares

There are currently 176,056 Origin Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Origin Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% up from 171,756 last month.

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

Origin Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Origin Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Origin Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Origin Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 57534.640522876). Origin Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.06. In other words for every 100,000 Origin Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3060 shares are currently held short.

However Origin Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Origin Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Origin Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Origin Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Origin Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0092% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Origin Bancorp 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 Origin Bancorp.

Origin Bancorp share dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 24.84% of net profits

Recently Origin Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 24.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Origin Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Origin Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.378 per share.

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

Origin Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 26 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Origin Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Origin Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.8083 up to $34.94. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OBNK.US volatility(beta: 1.1)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 Origin Bancorp's is 1.1023. This would suggest that Origin Bancorp'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).
