Is Customers Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Customers Bancorp's P/E ratio

Customers 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 6x. In other words, Customers Bancorp shares trade at around 6x 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 Customers Bancorp shares

There are currently 382,993 Customers Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Customers Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 19.6% down from 476,243 last month.

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

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

Customers Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Customers Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Customers Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 148446.89922481). Customers Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.58. In other words for every 100,000 Customers Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2580 shares are currently held short.

However Customers Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Customers Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Customers Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Customers Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Customers Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0155% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Customers Bancorp shares, roughly 16 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 Customers Bancorp.

Have Customers Bancorp's shares ever split?

Customers Bancorp's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 22 May 2014. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Customers Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Customers Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Customers Bancorp's share price.

Customers Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Customers Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.36 up to $24.09. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CUBI.US volatility(beta: 1.57)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Customers Bancorp's is 1.5675. This would suggest that Customers Bancorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
