Is WVS Financial under- or over-valued?

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 P/E ratio

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 24x. In other words, WVS Financial 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.

Shorting WVS Financial shares

There are currently 369 WVS Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as WVS Financial's "short interest". This figure is 56.3% down from 845 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)

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 401.08695652174). WVS Financial's SIR currently stands at 0.92. In other words for every 100,000 WVS Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 920 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 0.0003% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WVS Financial shares, roughly 0 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 WVS Financial.

WVS Financial share dividends

62%

Dividend payout ratio: 62.29% of net profits

Recently WVS Financial has paid out, on average, around 62.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.57% 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 2.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WVS Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.3 per share.

WVS Financial's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

WVS Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 18 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have WVS Financial's shares ever split?

WVS Financial's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 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.

WVS Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, WVS Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.1522 up to $16.6873. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WVFC.US volatility(beta: 0.65)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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 0.6492. This would suggest that WVS Financial's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
