Is Amerant Bancorp under- or over-valued?
Valuing Amerant Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Amerant Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Amerant Bancorp's P/E ratio
Amerant Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Amerant Bancorp shares trade at around 22x 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 Amerant Bancorp shares
There are currently 225,613 Amerant Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Amerant Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 9.6% down from 249,447 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Amerant Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Amerant Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Amerant Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Amerant Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Amerant Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 77001.023890785). Amerant Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.93. In other words for every 100,000 Amerant Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2930 shares are currently held short.
However Amerant Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Amerant Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Amerant Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Amerant Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Amerant Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.009% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Amerant Bancorp shares, roughly 9 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 Amerant Bancorp.

Have Amerant Bancorp's shares ever split?
Amerant Bancorp's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 23 October 2018. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share.

However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Amerant Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Amerant Bancorp's share price.
Amerant Bancorp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Amerant Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.01 up to $24.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
