Is SB Financial Group under- or over-valued?

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

SB Financial Group's P/E ratio

SB Financial Group'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, SB Financial Group 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.

Shorting SB Financial Group shares

There are currently 99,414 SB Financial Group shares held short by investors – that's known as SB Financial Group's "short interest". This figure is 6.1% up from 93,716 last month.

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

SB Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SB Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SB Financial Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SB Financial Group shares traded daily (recently around 15880.830670927). SB Financial Group's SIR currently stands at 6.26. In other words for every 100,000 SB Financial Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6260 shares are currently held short.

However SB Financial Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SB Financial Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable SB Financial Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SB Financial Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SB Financial Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0149% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SB Financial Group shares, roughly 15 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 SB Financial Group.

SB Financial Group share dividends

17%

Dividend payout ratio: 16.8% of net profits

Recently SB Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 16.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.28% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SB Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SB Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

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

SB Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 26 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have SB Financial Group's shares ever split?

SB Financial Group's shares were split on 12 September 2001.

SB Financial Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SB Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.7822 up to $19.98. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SBFG.US volatility(beta: 1.24)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while SB Financial Group's is 1.2369. This would suggest that SB Financial Group'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).
