Valuing BCB Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BCB Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BCB 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 11x. In other words, BCB Bancorp shares trade at around 11x 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.
BCB Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.67. 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 BCB Bancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 127,005 BCB Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as BCB Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 18.2% down from 155,267 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BCB Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
BCB Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BCB Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BCB Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 29674.065420561). BCB Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 4.28. In other words for every 100,000 BCB Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4280 shares are currently held short.
However BCB Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BCB Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable BCB Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BCB Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BCB Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0087% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BCB 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 BCB Bancorp.

Dividend payout ratio: 56.03% of net profits
Recently BCB Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 56.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BCB Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 5.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BCB Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
BCB Bancorp'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.
BCB Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 20 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
BCB Bancorp's shares were split on a 125:100 basis on 28 October 2005. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 125 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BCB Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BCB Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted BCB Bancorp's share price.
Over the last 12 months, BCB Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.6178 up to $13.2406. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while BCB Bancorp's is 0.5927. This would suggest that BCB Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
