Is Sierra Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Sierra Bancorp's P/E ratio

Sierra 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, Sierra 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.

Sierra Bancorp's PEG ratio

Sierra Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.27. 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 Sierra 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 Sierra Bancorp shares

There are currently 151,923 Sierra Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Sierra Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 4.7% down from 159,414 last month.

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

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

Sierra Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sierra Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sierra Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 33911.383928571). Sierra Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 4.48. In other words for every 100,000 Sierra Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4480 shares are currently held short.

However Sierra Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sierra Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sierra Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sierra Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sierra Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0109% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sierra Bancorp shares, roughly 11 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 Sierra Bancorp.

Sierra Bancorp share dividends

32%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.35% of net profits

Recently Sierra Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 32.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sierra Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sierra Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.82 per share.

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

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

Have Sierra Bancorp's shares ever split?

Sierra Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 November 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sierra Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sierra Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Sierra Bancorp's share price.

Sierra Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sierra Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.5796 up to $28.932. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BSRR.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 Sierra Bancorp's is 1.2397. This would suggest that Sierra Bancorp'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).
