Valuing Sound Financial Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sound Financial Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sound Financial 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 10x. In other words, Sound Financial Bancorp shares trade at around 10x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1,175 Sound Financial Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Sound Financial Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 1.9% up from 1,153 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sound Financial Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Sound Financial Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sound Financial Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sound Financial Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 743.67088607595). Sound Financial Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 1.58. In other words for every 100,000 Sound Financial Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1580 shares are currently held short.
However Sound Financial Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sound Financial Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sound Financial Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sound Financial Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sound Financial Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0005% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sound Financial Bancorp shares, roughly 1 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 Sound Financial Bancorp.

Dividend payout ratio: 23.53% of net profits
Recently Sound Financial Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 23.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sound Financial Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sound Financial Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
While Sound Financial Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Sound Financial Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.
Sound Financial Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 24 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Sound Financial Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.5791 up to $35.723. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Sound Financial Bancorp's is 1.04. This would suggest that Sound Financial 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).
