Is Territorial Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Territorial Bancorp's P/E ratio

Territorial Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Territorial Bancorp shares trade at around 13x 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.

Territorial Bancorp's PEG ratio

Territorial Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.54. 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 Territorial Bancorp'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 Territorial Bancorp shares

There are currently 61,713 Territorial Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Territorial Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 41.9% up from 43,488 last month.

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

Territorial Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Territorial Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Territorial Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Territorial Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 27673.99103139). Territorial Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.23. In other words for every 100,000 Territorial Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2230 shares are currently held short.

However Territorial Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Territorial Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Territorial Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Territorial Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Territorial Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0071% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Territorial Bancorp shares, roughly 7 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 Territorial Bancorp.

Territorial Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 39.11% of net profits

Recently Territorial Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 39.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Territorial Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Territorial Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.92 per share.

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

Territorial Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 25 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Territorial Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Territorial Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.7664 up to $26.8487. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TBNK.US volatility(beta: 0.56)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Territorial Bancorp's is 0.5566. This would suggest that Territorial Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
