Is Southside Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

Southside Bancshares's P/E ratio

Southside Bancshares'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, Southside Bancshares 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.

Southside Bancshares's PEG ratio

Southside Bancshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.82. 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 Southside Bancshares'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 Southside Bancshares shares

There are currently 733,566 Southside Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Southside Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% down from 750,183 last month.

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

Southside Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Southside Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Southside Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Southside Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 121250.5785124). Southside Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 6.05. In other words for every 100,000 Southside Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6050 shares are currently held short.

However Southside Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Southside Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Southside Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Southside Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Southside Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0236% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Southside Bancshares shares, roughly 24 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Southside Bancshares.

Southside Bancshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 39.98% of net profits

Recently Southside Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 39.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Southside Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 3.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Southside Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.

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

Southside Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Southside Bancshares's shares ever split?

Southside Bancshares's shares were split on a 1024:1000 basis on 24 May 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1024 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Southside Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Southside Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Southside Bancshares's share price.

Southside Bancshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Southside Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.3295 up to $43.0553. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SBSI.US volatility(beta: 0.57)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 Southside Bancshares's is 0.5714. This would suggest that Southside Bancshares's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
