Is SmartFinancial under- or over-valued?

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

SmartFinancial's P/E ratio

SmartFinancial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, SmartFinancial shares trade at around 11x 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 SmartFinancial shares

There are currently 86,342 SmartFinancial shares held short by investors – that's known as SmartFinancial's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% down from 89,818 last month.

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

SmartFinancial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SmartFinancial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SmartFinancial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SmartFinancial shares traded daily (recently around 52328.484848485). SmartFinancial's SIR currently stands at 1.65. In other words for every 100,000 SmartFinancial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1650 shares are currently held short.

However SmartFinancial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SmartFinancial shares, or, against the total number of tradable SmartFinancial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SmartFinancial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SmartFinancial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0063% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SmartFinancial shares, roughly 6 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 SmartFinancial.

SmartFinancial share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 8.47% of net profits

Recently SmartFinancial has paid out, on average, around 8.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SmartFinancial shareholders could enjoy a 1.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SmartFinancial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.21 per share.

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

SmartFinancial'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 SmartFinancial's shares ever split?

SmartFinancial's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 22 September 2015. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SmartFinancial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SmartFinancial shares which in turn could have impacted SmartFinancial's share price.

SmartFinancial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SmartFinancial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.8942 up to $23.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SMBK.US volatility(beta: 0.74)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 SmartFinancial's is 0.7369. This would suggest that SmartFinancial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
