Is Capital Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Capital Bancorp's P/E ratio

Capital 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 9x. In other words, Capital Bancorp shares trade at around 9x 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 Capital Bancorp shares

There are currently 65,056 Capital Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Capital Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 7.4% up from 60,566 last month.

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

Capital Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Capital Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Capital Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Capital Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 19894.801223242). Capital Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.27. In other words for every 100,000 Capital Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3270 shares are currently held short.

However Capital Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Capital Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Capital Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Capital Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Capital Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0081% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Capital Bancorp shares, roughly 8 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 Capital Bancorp.
