Is Piper Sandler Companies under- or over-valued?
Valuing Piper Sandler Companies stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Piper Sandler Companies's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Piper Sandler Companies's P/E ratio
Piper Sandler Companies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Piper Sandler Companies shares trade at around 18x 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 Piper Sandler Companies shares
There are currently 215,558 Piper Sandler Companies shares held short by investors – that's known as Piper Sandler Companies's "short interest". This figure is 6.8% down from 231,206 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Piper Sandler Companies shares can be evaluated.
Piper Sandler Companies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Piper Sandler Companies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Piper Sandler Companies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Piper Sandler Companies shares traded daily (recently around 75900.704225352). Piper Sandler Companies's SIR currently stands at 2.84. In other words for every 100,000 Piper Sandler Companies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2840 shares are currently held short.
However Piper Sandler Companies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Piper Sandler Companies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Piper Sandler Companies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Piper Sandler Companies's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Piper Sandler Companies shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0157% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Piper Sandler Companies shares, roughly 16 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 Piper Sandler Companies.

Piper Sandler Companies share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 26.68% of net profits
Recently Piper Sandler Companies has paid out, on average, around 26.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Piper Sandler Companies shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Piper Sandler Companies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.275 per share.
While Piper Sandler Companies's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Piper Sandler Companies may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Piper Sandler Companies's most recent dividend payout was on 10 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Piper Sandler Companies share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Piper Sandler Companies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $55.9569 up to $135.17. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Piper Sandler Companies's is 1.3351. This would suggest that Piper Sandler Companies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
