Is Republic Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Republic Bancorp's P/E ratio

Republic 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 9x. In other words, Republic Bancorp shares trade at around 9x 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.

Republic Bancorp's PEG ratio

Republic Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.75. 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 Republic Bancorp'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 Republic Bancorp shares

There are currently 114,247 Republic Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Republic Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% down from 120,966 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Republic Bancorp shares can be evaluated.

Republic Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Republic Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Republic Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Republic Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 18397.262479871). Republic Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 6.21. In other words for every 100,000 Republic Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6210 shares are currently held short.

However Republic Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Republic Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Republic Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Republic Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Republic Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0085% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Republic Bancorp shares, roughly 9 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 Republic Bancorp.

Republic Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 26.92% of net profits

Recently Republic Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 26.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Republic Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Republic Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.14 per share.

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

Republic Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 15 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Republic Bancorp's shares ever split?

Republic Bancorp's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 21 March 2007. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Republic Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Republic Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Republic Bancorp's share price.

Republic Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Republic Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.3648 up to $45.5444. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RBCAA.US volatility(beta: 0.61)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
