Is Summit State Bank under- or over-valued?

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

Summit State Bank's P/E ratio

Summit State Bank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Summit State Bank shares trade at around 9x 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.

Shorting Summit State Bank shares

There are currently 1,169 Summit State Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as Summit State Bank's "short interest". This figure is 46.9% down from 2,202 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Summit State Bank shares can be evaluated.

Summit State Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Summit State Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Summit State Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Summit State Bank shares traded daily (recently around 2597.7777777778). Summit State Bank's SIR currently stands at 0.45. In other words for every 100,000 Summit State Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 450 shares are currently held short.

However Summit State Bank's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Summit State Bank shares, or, against the total number of tradable Summit State Bank shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Summit State Bank's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Summit State Bank shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0002% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Summit State Bank shares, roughly 0 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 Summit State Bank.

Summit State Bank share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 30.95% of net profits

Recently Summit State Bank has paid out, on average, around 30.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Summit State Bank shareholders could enjoy a 3.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Summit State Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

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

Summit State Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 20 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Summit State Bank's shares ever split?

Summit State Bank's shares were split on a 125:100 basis on 15 March 2017. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 125 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Summit State Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Summit State Bank shares which in turn could have impacted Summit State Bank's share price.

Summit State Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Summit State Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.289 up to $14.1102. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
