Is Pacific Premier Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Pacific Premier Bancorp's P/E ratio

Pacific Premier 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 59x. In other words, Pacific Premier Bancorp shares trade at around 59x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Pacific Premier Bancorp's PEG ratio

Pacific Premier Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.98. 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 Pacific Premier 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 Pacific Premier Bancorp shares

There are currently 1.6 million Pacific Premier Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Pacific Premier Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 10.4% up from 1.4 million last month.

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

Pacific Premier Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Pacific Premier Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pacific Premier Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pacific Premier Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 484147.51552795). Pacific Premier Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.22. In other words for every 100,000 Pacific Premier Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3220 shares are currently held short.

However Pacific Premier Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pacific Premier Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pacific Premier Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pacific Premier Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pacific Premier Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0197% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pacific Premier Bancorp shares, roughly 20 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 Pacific Premier Bancorp.

Pacific Premier Bancorp share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.51% of net profits

Recently Pacific Premier Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 2.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pacific Premier Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pacific Premier Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.

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

Pacific Premier Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 11 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Pacific Premier Bancorp's shares ever split?

Pacific Premier Bancorp's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 11 June 2001. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Pacific Premier Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pacific Premier Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Pacific Premier Bancorp's share price.

Pacific Premier Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Pacific Premier Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.2288 up to $47.15. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PPBI.US volatility(beta: 1.4)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 Pacific Premier Bancorp's is 1.3982. This would suggest that Pacific Premier 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).
