Is California BanCorp under- or over-valued?

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

California BanCorp's P/E ratio

California 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 16x. In other words, California BanCorp shares trade at around 16x 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 California BanCorp shares

There are currently 12,250 California BanCorp shares held short by investors – that's known as California BanCorp's "short interest". This figure is 45.7% up from 8,406 last month.

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

California BanCorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

California BanCorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of California BanCorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of California BanCorp shares traded daily (recently around 12894.736842105). California BanCorp's SIR currently stands at 0.95. In other words for every 100,000 California BanCorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 950 shares are currently held short.

However California BanCorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of California BanCorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable California BanCorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case California BanCorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 California BanCorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0021% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable California BanCorp shares, roughly 2 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 California BanCorp.

California BanCorp share dividends

We're not expecting California BanCorp to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have California BanCorp's shares ever split?

California BanCorp's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 15 August 2017. 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 California BanCorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for California BanCorp shares which in turn could have impacted California BanCorp's share price.

California BanCorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, California BanCorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.9 up to $19.88. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CALB.US volatility(beta: 1.27)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 California BanCorp's is 1.2656. This would suggest that California BanCorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
