Is Synovus Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Synovus Financial's P/E ratio

Synovus 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 16x. In other words, Synovus Financial 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.

Synovus Financial's PEG ratio

Synovus Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.34. 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 Synovus 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 Synovus Financial shares

There are currently 1.9 million Synovus Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Synovus Financial's "short interest". This figure is 12.4% up from 1.7 million last month.

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

Synovus Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Synovus Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Synovus Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Synovus Financial shares traded daily (recently around 988708.5106383). Synovus Financial's SIR currently stands at 1.88. In other words for every 100,000 Synovus Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1880 shares are currently held short.

However Synovus Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Synovus Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Synovus Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Synovus Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Synovus Financial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0126% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Synovus Financial shares, roughly 13 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 Synovus Financial.

Synovus Financial share dividends

39%

Dividend payout ratio: 38.71% of net profits

Recently Synovus Financial has paid out, on average, around 38.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Synovus Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Synovus Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.

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

Synovus Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Synovus Financial's shares ever split?

Synovus Financial's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 18 May 2014. So if you had owned 7 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Synovus Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Synovus Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Synovus Financial's share price.

Synovus Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Synovus Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.2769 up to $50.1573. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SNV.US volatility(beta: 1.63)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Synovus Financial's is 1.6333. This would suggest that Synovus 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).
