Is Affinity Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

Affinity Bancshares's P/E ratio

Affinity Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 39x. In other words, Affinity Bancshares shares trade at around 39x 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.

Shorting Affinity Bancshares shares

There are currently 10,236 Affinity Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Affinity Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 49.9% up from 6,830 last month.

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

Affinity Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Affinity Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Affinity Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Affinity Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 5532.972972973). Affinity Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 1.85. In other words for every 100,000 Affinity Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1850 shares are currently held short.

However Affinity Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Affinity Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Affinity Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Affinity Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Affinity Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0031% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Affinity Bancshares shares, roughly 3 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 Affinity Bancshares.
