Is TCF Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

TCF Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

TCF Financial Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, TCF Financial Corporation shares trade at around 24x 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.

TCF Financial Corporation's PEG ratio

TCF Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.58. 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 TCF Financial Corporation'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 TCF Financial Corporation shares

There are currently 3.6 million TCF Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as TCF Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 14.6% down from 4.2 million last month.

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

TCF Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TCF Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TCF Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TCF Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). TCF Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3. In other words for every 100,000 TCF Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3000 shares are currently held short.

However TCF Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TCF Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable TCF Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TCF Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TCF Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0227% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TCF Financial Corporation shares, roughly 23 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 TCF Financial Corporation.

TCF Financial Corporation share dividends

50%

Dividend payout ratio: 50.36% of net profits

Recently TCF Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 50.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TCF Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TCF Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.4 per share.

TCF Financial Corporation'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.

TCF Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
