Is Parke Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Parke Bancorp's P/E ratio

Parke 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 8x. In other words, Parke Bancorp shares trade at around 8x 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 Parke Bancorp shares

There are currently 116,890 Parke Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Parke Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 3.7% up from 112,761 last month.

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

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

Parke Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Parke Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Parke Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 29818.87755102). Parke Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.92. In other words for every 100,000 Parke Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3920 shares are currently held short.

However Parke Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Parke Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Parke Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Parke Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Parke Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0118% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Parke Bancorp shares, roughly 12 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 Parke Bancorp.

Parke Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 19.61% of net profits

Recently Parke Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 19.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Parke Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Parke Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.

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

Parke Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 15 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Parke Bancorp's shares ever split?

Parke Bancorp's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 13 February 2020. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Parke Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Parke Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Parke Bancorp's share price.

Parke Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Parke Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.471 up to $21.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PKBK.US volatility(beta: 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 Parke Bancorp's is 1.0033. This would suggest that Parke 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).
