Is Banc of California under- or over-valued?
Valuing Banc of California stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Banc of California's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Banc of California's P/E ratio
Banc of California's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 52x. In other words, Banc of California shares trade at around 52x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Banc of California's PEG ratio
Banc of California's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.15. 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 Banc of California'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 Banc of California shares
There are currently 2.4 million Banc of California shares held short by investors – that's known as Banc of California's "short interest". This figure is 25% up from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Banc of California shares can be evaluated.
Banc of California's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Banc of California's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Banc of California shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Banc of California shares traded daily (recently around 347609.72818312). Banc of California's SIR currently stands at 6.99. In other words for every 100,000 Banc of California shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6990 shares are currently held short.
However Banc of California's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Banc of California shares, or, against the total number of tradable Banc of California shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Banc of California's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Banc of California shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0528% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Banc of California shares, roughly 53 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 Banc of California.

Banc of California share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 80% of net profits
Recently Banc of California has paid out, on average, around 80% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Banc of California shareholders could enjoy a 1.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Banc of California's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.
Banc of California'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.
Banc of California's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Banc of California share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Banc of California's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.9079 up to $21.33. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Banc of California's is 1.8428. This would suggest that Banc of California's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
