Is American River Bankshares under- or over-valued?

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

American River Bankshares's P/E ratio

American River Bankshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, American River Bankshares shares trade at around 14x 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.

American River Bankshares's PEG ratio

American River Bankshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.25. 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 American River Bankshares's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting American River Bankshares shares

There are currently 2,926 American River Bankshares shares held short by investors – that's known as American River Bankshares's "short interest". This figure is 10% up from 2,661 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting American River Bankshares shares can be evaluated.

American River Bankshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

American River Bankshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of American River Bankshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of American River Bankshares shares traded daily (recently around 11253.846153846). American River Bankshares's SIR currently stands at 0.26. In other words for every 100,000 American River Bankshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 260 shares are currently held short.

However American River Bankshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of American River Bankshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable American River Bankshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case American River Bankshares's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 American River Bankshares shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0006% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable American River Bankshares shares, roughly 1 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 American River Bankshares.

Dividend payout ratio: 18.54% of net profits

Recently American River Bankshares has paid out, on average, around 18.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), American River Bankshares shareholders could enjoy a 1.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In American River Bankshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.

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

Have American River Bankshares's shares ever split?

American River Bankshares's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 30 November 2008. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your American River Bankshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for American River Bankshares shares which in turn could have impacted American River Bankshares's share price.
