Is PennyMac Financial Services under- or over-valued?

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

PennyMac Financial Services's P/E ratio

PennyMac Financial Services's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, PennyMac Financial Services shares trade at around 3x 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.

PennyMac Financial Services's PEG ratio

PennyMac Financial Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.67. 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 PennyMac Financial Services'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 PennyMac Financial Services shares

There are currently 3.1 million PennyMac Financial Services shares held short by investors – that's known as PennyMac Financial Services's "short interest". This figure is 9.3% up from 2.8 million last month.

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

PennyMac Financial Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PennyMac Financial Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PennyMac Financial Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PennyMac Financial Services shares traded daily (recently around 762280.54862843). PennyMac Financial Services's SIR currently stands at 4.01. In other words for every 100,000 PennyMac Financial Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4010 shares are currently held short.

However PennyMac Financial Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PennyMac Financial Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable PennyMac Financial Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PennyMac Financial Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PennyMac Financial Services shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0985% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PennyMac Financial Services shares, roughly 99 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 PennyMac Financial Services.

PennyMac Financial Services share dividends

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 3.86% of net profits

Recently PennyMac Financial Services has paid out, on average, around 3.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PennyMac Financial Services shareholders could enjoy a 1.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PennyMac Financial Services's case, that would currently equate to about $0.67 per share.

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

PennyMac Financial Services's most recent dividend payout was on 26 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

PennyMac Financial Services share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PennyMac Financial Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $45.9883 up to $69.5399. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PFSI.US volatility(beta: 1.14)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while PennyMac Financial Services's is 1.1442. This would suggest that PennyMac Financial Services'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).
