Is Stifel Financial under- or over-valued?
Valuing Stifel Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Stifel Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Stifel Financial's P/E ratio
Stifel Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Stifel Financial shares trade at around 14x 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.
Stifel Financial's PEG ratio
Stifel Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.019. 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 Stifel Financial'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 Stifel Financial shares
There are currently 1.6 million Stifel Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Stifel Financial's "short interest". This figure is 45.4% down from 2.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Stifel Financial shares can be evaluated.
Stifel Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Stifel Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Stifel Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Stifel Financial shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Stifel Financial's SIR currently stands at 1.12. In other words for every 100,000 Stifel Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1120 shares are currently held short.
However Stifel Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Stifel Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Stifel Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Stifel Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Stifel Financial shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0157% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Stifel Financial shares, roughly 16 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 Stifel Financial.

Stifel Financial share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 10.01% of net profits
Recently Stifel Financial has paid out, on average, around 10.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Stifel Financial shareholders could enjoy a 0.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Stifel Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.49 per share.
While Stifel Financial's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Stifel Financial is investing more in its future growth.
Stifel Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Stifel Financial's shares ever split?
Stifel Financial's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 December 2020. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Stifel Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Stifel Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Stifel Financial's share price.
Stifel Financial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Stifel Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.0314 up to $72.0433. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Stifel Financial's is 1.5158. This would suggest that Stifel Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
