Valuing WVS Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of WVS Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
WVS Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, WVS Financial shares trade at around 15x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4,031 WVS Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as WVS Financial's "short interest". This figure is 10% down from 4,480 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting WVS Financial shares can be evaluated.
WVS Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WVS Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WVS Financial shares traded daily (recently around 619.20122887865). WVS Financial's SIR currently stands at 6.51. In other words for every 100,000 WVS Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6510 shares are currently held short.
However WVS Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WVS Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable WVS Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WVS Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WVS Financial shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0029% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WVS Financial shares, roughly 3 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 WVS Financial.

Dividend payout ratio: 47.64% of net profits
Recently WVS Financial has paid out, on average, around 47.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WVS Financial shareholders could enjoy a 2.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WVS Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
While WVS Financial's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that WVS Financial may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
WVS Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 18 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
WVS Financial's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 May 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your WVS Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for WVS Financial shares which in turn could have impacted WVS Financial's share price.
Over the last 12 months, WVS Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.712 up to $16.2235. 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 WVS Financial's is 0.651. This would suggest that WVS Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
