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 16x. In other words, Southside Bancshares shares trade at around 16x 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 918,787 Southside Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Southside Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% up from 836,318 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 99651.518438178). Southside Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 9.22. In other words for every 100,000 Southside Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9220 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 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Southside Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0345% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Southside Bancshares shares, roughly 35 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

60%

Dividend payout ratio: 59.55% of net profits

Recently Southside Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 59.55% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.85% 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 3.85% 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.

Southside Bancshares's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Southside Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Southside Bancshares's shares ever split?

Southside Bancshares's shares were split on a 1024:1000 basis on 25 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 $22.9286 up to $35.6097. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
