Is The Community Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

The Community Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

The Community 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 12x. In other words, The Community Financial Corporation shares trade at around 12x 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.

The Community Financial Corporation's PEG ratio

The Community Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7. 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 The Community 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 The Community Financial Corporation shares

There are currently 53,897 The Community Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as The Community Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% up from 51,057 last month.

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

The Community Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

The Community Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Community Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Community Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 25543.601895735). The Community Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.11. In other words for every 100,000 The Community Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2110 shares are currently held short.

However The Community Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Community Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Community Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Community Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Community Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0102% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Community Financial Corporation shares, roughly 10 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 The Community Financial Corporation.

The Community Financial Corporation share dividends

19%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.16% of net profits

Recently The Community Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 19.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Community Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Community Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

The Community Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 25 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have The Community Financial Corporation's shares ever split?

The Community Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 28 November 2006. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The Community Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Community Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted The Community Financial Corporation's share price.

The Community Financial Corporation share price volatility
