Is Western New England Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Western New England Bancorp's P/E ratio

Western New England 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, Western New England 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.

Western New England Bancorp's PEG ratio

Western New England Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.63. 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 Western New England 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 Western New England Bancorp shares

There are currently 114,227 Western New England Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Western New England Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 83.3% down from 685,187 last month.

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

Western New England Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Western New England Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Western New England Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Western New England Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 253837.77777778). Western New England Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 0.45. In other words for every 100,000 Western New England Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 450 shares are currently held short.

However Western New England Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Western New England Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Western New England Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Western New England Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Western New England Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0058% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Western New England Bancorp shares, roughly 6 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 Western New England Bancorp.

Western New England Bancorp share dividends

35%

Dividend payout ratio: 34.97% of net profits

Recently Western New England Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 34.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Western New England Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Western New England Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

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

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

Have Western New England Bancorp's shares ever split?

Western New England Bancorp's shares were split on a 328138:100 basis on 3 January 2007. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 328138 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Western New England Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Western New England Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Western New England Bancorp's share price.

Western New England Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Western New England Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.7834 up to $9.1837. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
