Is Signature Bank under- or over-valued?

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

Signature Bank's P/E ratio

Signature Bank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Signature Bank shares trade at around 24x 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.

Signature Bank's PEG ratio

Signature Bank's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.49. 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 Signature Bank'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 Signature Bank shares

There are currently 1.4 million Signature Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as Signature Bank's "short interest". This figure is 19% down from 1.7 million last month.

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

Signature Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Signature Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Signature Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Signature Bank shares traded daily (recently around 499064.0569395). Signature Bank's SIR currently stands at 2.81. In other words for every 100,000 Signature Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2810 shares are currently held short.

However Signature Bank's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Signature Bank shares, or, against the total number of tradable Signature Bank shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Signature Bank's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Signature Bank shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0239% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Signature Bank shares, roughly 24 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 Signature Bank.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Signature Bank's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 35

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Signature Bank's overall score of 35 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 65th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Signature Bank is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Signature Bank's environmental score

Environmental score: 8.91/100

Signature Bank's environmental score of 8.91 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Signature Bank is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Signature Bank's social score

Social score: 18.74/100

Signature Bank's social score of 18.74 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Signature Bank is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Governance score: 18.85/100

Signature Bank share dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.65% of net profits

Recently Signature Bank has paid out, on average, around 17.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Signature Bank shareholders could enjoy a 0.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Signature Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $2.24 per share.

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

Signature Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 12 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Signature Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Signature Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $70.874 up to $309.84. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SBNY.US volatility(beta: 1.93)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 Signature Bank's is 1.9333. This would suggest that Signature Bank's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
