Is Catalyst Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Catalyst Bancorp's P/E ratio

Catalyst 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 120x. In other words, Catalyst Bancorp shares trade at around 120x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

However, Catalyst Bancorp's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the banks-regional industry or those of similar companies.

    Have Catalyst Bancorp's shares ever split?

    Catalyst Bancorp's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 22 February 2002. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Catalyst Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Catalyst Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Catalyst Bancorp's share price.
