Valuing Community West Bancshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Community West Bancshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Community West 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 9x. In other words, Community West Bancshares 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.

There are currently 10,420 Community West Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Community West Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 18% down from 12,707 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Community West Bancshares shares can be evaluated.
Community West Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Community West Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Community West Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 4631.1111111111).

However Community West Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Community West Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Community West Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Community West Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Community West Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Community West Bancshares shares, roughly 2 shares are currently held short).

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Community West Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Community West Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.225 per share.
While Community West Bancshares's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Community West Bancshares is investing more in its future growth.

Community West Bancshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 March 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Community West Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Community West Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted Community West Bancshares's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Community West Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.8635 up to $14.5466. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Community West Bancshares's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
