Is PCSB Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Shorting PCSB Financial Corporation shares

There are currently 138,992 PCSB Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as PCSB Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% up from 135,354 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PCSB Financial Corporation shares can be evaluated.

PCSB Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PCSB Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PCSB Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PCSB Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 36101.818181818). PCSB Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.85. In other words for every 100,000 PCSB Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3850 shares are currently held short.

However PCSB Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PCSB Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable PCSB Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PCSB Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PCSB Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0102% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PCSB Financial Corporation shares, roughly 10 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 PCSB Financial Corporation.

PCSB Financial Corporation share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.67% of net profits

Recently PCSB Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 26.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PCSB Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PCSB Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.16 per share.

While PCSB Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that PCSB Financial Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

PCSB Financial Corporation'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").

PCSB Financial Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PCSB Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.9194 up to $18.9295. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
