Is TFS Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

TFS Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

TFS 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 63x. In other words, TFS Financial Corporation shares trade at around 63x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Shorting TFS Financial Corporation shares

There are currently 912,681 TFS Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as TFS Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.6% down from 1.0 million last month.

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

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

TFS Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TFS Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TFS Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 216275.11848341). TFS Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.22. In other words for every 100,000 TFS Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4220 shares are currently held short.

However TFS Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TFS Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable TFS Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TFS Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TFS Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.019% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TFS Financial Corporation shares, roughly 19 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 TFS Financial Corporation.

TFS Financial Corporation share dividends

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 3.5% of net profits

Recently TFS Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 3.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TFS Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TFS Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 per share.

While TFS Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that TFS Financial Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

TFS Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 21 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
