Valuing Columbia Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Columbia Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Columbia Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, Columbia Financial shares trade at around 33x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.2 million Columbia Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Columbia Financial's "short interest". This figure is 25.2% up from 935,465 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Columbia Financial shares can be evaluated.
Columbia Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Columbia Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Columbia Financial shares traded daily (recently around 173225.14792899). Columbia Financial's SIR currently stands at 6.76. In other words for every 100,000 Columbia Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6760 shares are currently held short.
However Columbia Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Columbia Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Columbia Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Columbia Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Columbia Financial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0255% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Columbia Financial shares, roughly 26 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Columbia Financial.
