Is WSFS Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing WSFS Financial Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of WSFS Financial Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
WSFS Financial Corporation's P/E ratio
WSFS 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 8x. In other words, WSFS Financial Corporation shares trade at around 8x 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.
WSFS Financial Corporation's PEG ratio
WSFS Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.96. 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 WSFS 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 WSFS Financial Corporation shares
There are currently 1.8 million WSFS Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as WSFS Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% down from 1.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting WSFS Financial Corporation shares can be evaluated.
WSFS Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
WSFS Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WSFS Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WSFS Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 250072.81553398). WSFS Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.21. In other words for every 100,000 WSFS Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7210 shares are currently held short.
However WSFS Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WSFS Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable WSFS Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WSFS Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WSFS Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0384% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WSFS Financial Corporation shares, roughly 38 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against WSFS Financial Corporation.

WSFS Financial Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 9.01% of net profits
Recently WSFS Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 9.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WSFS Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WSFS Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.49 per share.
While WSFS Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that WSFS Financial Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
WSFS Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 18 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have WSFS Financial Corporation's shares ever split?
WSFS Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 18 May 2015. So if you had owned 1 share 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 WSFS Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for WSFS Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted WSFS Financial Corporation's share price.
WSFS Financial Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, WSFS Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.3792 up to $55.12. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while WSFS Financial Corporation's is 1.3406. This would suggest that WSFS Financial Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
