Valuing South State Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of South State Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
South State Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, South State Corporation shares trade at around 38x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
South State Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.61. 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 South State Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.2 million South State Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as South State Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 13.2% down from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting South State Corporation shares can be evaluated.
South State Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of South State Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of South State Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 393950). South State Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.12. In other words for every 100,000 South State Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3120 shares are currently held short.
However South State Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of South State Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable South State Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case South State Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 South State Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0175% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable South State Corporation shares, roughly 18 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 South State Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 39.75% of net profits
Recently South State Corporation has paid out, on average, around 39.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), South State Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In South State Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.88 per share.
While South State Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that South State Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
South State Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 18 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
South State Corporation's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 6 March 2007. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your South State Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for South State Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted South State Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, South State Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.6178 up to $93.26. 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 South State Corporation's is 1.0805. This would suggest that South State Corporation'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).
