Is Allegiance Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

Allegiance Bancshares's P/E ratio

Allegiance Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Allegiance Bancshares shares trade at around 18x 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 Allegiance Bancshares shares

There are currently 277,219 Allegiance Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Allegiance Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% down from 280,784 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Allegiance Bancshares shares can be evaluated.

Allegiance Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Allegiance Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Allegiance Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Allegiance Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 65228). Allegiance Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 4.25. In other words for every 100,000 Allegiance Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4250 shares are currently held short.

However Allegiance Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allegiance Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allegiance Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allegiance Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allegiance Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0174% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allegiance Bancshares shares, roughly 17 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 Allegiance Bancshares.

In Allegiance Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

While Allegiance Bancshares's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Allegiance Bancshares is investing more in its future growth.

ABTX.US volatility(beta: 1.11)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 Allegiance Bancshares's is 1.1103. This would suggest that Allegiance Bancshares's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
