Is BayCom under- or over-valued?

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

BayCom's P/E ratio

BayCom's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, BayCom shares trade at around 13x 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 BayCom shares

There are currently 65,542 BayCom shares held short by investors – that's known as BayCom's "short interest". This figure is 10.5% down from 73,248 last month.

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

BayCom's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BayCom's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BayCom shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BayCom shares traded daily (recently around 32128.431372549). BayCom's SIR currently stands at 2.04. In other words for every 100,000 BayCom shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2040 shares are currently held short.

However BayCom's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BayCom shares, or, against the total number of tradable BayCom shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BayCom's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BayCom shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0059% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BayCom shares, roughly 6 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 BayCom.

BayCom share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BayCom's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.67 up to $23.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BCML.US volatility(beta: 1)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 BayCom's is 1.0031. This would suggest that BayCom'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).
