Is Pathfinder Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Pathfinder Bancorp's P/E ratio

Pathfinder 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 12x. In other words, Pathfinder Bancorp shares trade at around 12x 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 Pathfinder Bancorp shares

There are currently 2,153 Pathfinder Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Pathfinder Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 28.4% down from 3,009 last month.

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

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

Pathfinder Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pathfinder Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pathfinder Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 732.31292517007). Pathfinder Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.94. In other words for every 100,000 Pathfinder Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2940 shares are currently held short.

However Pathfinder Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pathfinder Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pathfinder Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pathfinder Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pathfinder Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0006% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pathfinder Bancorp shares, roughly 1 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 Pathfinder Bancorp.

Pathfinder Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 16.19% of net profits

Recently Pathfinder Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 16.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pathfinder Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pathfinder Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.26 per share.

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

Pathfinder Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 4 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Pathfinder Bancorp's shares ever split?

Pathfinder Bancorp's shares were split on a 1647:1000 basis on 16 October 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1647 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Pathfinder Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 39.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pathfinder Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Pathfinder Bancorp's share price.

Pathfinder Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Pathfinder Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.6049 up to $16.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Pathfinder Bancorp's is 0.0831. This would suggest that Pathfinder Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
