Is Penns Woods Bancorp under- or over-valued?
Valuing Penns Woods Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Penns Woods Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Penns Woods Bancorp's P/E ratio
Penns Woods 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 11x. In other words, Penns Woods Bancorp shares trade at around 11x 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.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Penns Woods Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Penns Woods Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Penns Woods Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Penns Woods Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Penns Woods Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Penns Woods Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Penns Woods Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0036% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Penns Woods Bancorp shares, roughly 4 shares are currently held short).

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.36% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Penns Woods Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 5.36% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Penns Woods Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.
Penns Woods Bancorp's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Penns Woods Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Penns Woods Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Penns Woods Bancorp's share price.
Penns Woods Bancorp share price volatility
