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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, WSFS Financial Corporation shares trade at around 24x 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 "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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.2 million WSFS Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as WSFS Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 33.9% up from 874,391 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) is the quantity of WSFS Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WSFS Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 308840.36939314). WSFS Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.79. In other words for every 100,000 WSFS Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3790 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 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WSFS Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0235% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WSFS Financial Corporation shares, roughly 24 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 WSFS Financial Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 27.75% of net profits
Recently WSFS Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 27.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.03% 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 1.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WSFS Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
While WSFS Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that WSFS Financial Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
WSFS Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 19 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
WSFS Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 19 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.
Over the last 12 months, WSFS Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.6193 up to $47.095. 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 1.3776. 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).
