Is Shore Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

Shore Bancshares's P/E ratio

Shore Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Shore Bancshares shares trade at around 13x 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.

Shore Bancshares's PEG ratio

Shore Bancshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.78. 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 Shore Bancshares'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 Shore Bancshares shares

There are currently 723,054 Shore Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Shore Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 6.8% up from 676,840 last month.

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

Shore Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Shore Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Shore Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Shore Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 100844.35146444). Shore Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 7.17. In other words for every 100,000 Shore Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7170 shares are currently held short.

However Shore Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shore Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Shore Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shore Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Shore Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0703% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Shore Bancshares shares, roughly 70 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 Shore Bancshares.

Shore Bancshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 37.8% of net profits

Recently Shore Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 37.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Shore Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Shore Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

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

Shore Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 28 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Shore Bancshares's shares ever split?

Shore Bancshares's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 5 June 2006. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Shore Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Shore Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Shore Bancshares's share price.

Shore Bancshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Shore Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.9451 up to $18.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SHBI.US volatility(beta: 1.02)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 Shore Bancshares's is 1.0237. This would suggest that Shore Bancshares'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).
