Is PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust under- or over-valued?

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

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's P/E ratio

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 623x. In other words, PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shares trade at around 623x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's PEG ratio

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.12. 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 Mortgage Investment Trust's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 4.1 million PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's "short interest". This figure is 28.9% down from 5.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shares can be evaluated.

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shares traded daily (recently around 810684.15841584). PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's SIR currently stands at 5.05. In other words for every 100,000 PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5050 shares are currently held short.

However PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0507% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shares, roughly 51 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust.

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 15200% of net profits

Recently PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust has paid out, on average, around 15200% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust shareholders could enjoy a 10.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $1.88 per share.

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust'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.

PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 29 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
