Is Bank First Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Bank First Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bank First Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Bank First Corporation's P/E ratio
Bank First Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Bank First Corporation shares trade at around 12x 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 Bank First Corporation shares
There are currently 220,553 Bank First Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Bank First Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.1% down from 239,872 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bank First Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Bank First Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Bank First Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bank First Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bank First Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 18915.351629503). Bank First Corporation's SIR currently stands at 11.66. In other words for every 100,000 Bank First Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11660 shares are currently held short.
However Bank First Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bank First Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bank First Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bank First Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bank First Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0338% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bank First Corporation shares, roughly 34 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Bank First Corporation.
