Is FFBW under- or over-valued?

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

FFBW's P/E ratio

FFBW's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, FFBW shares trade at around 32x 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 FFBW shares

There are currently 2,048 FFBW shares held short by investors – that's known as FFBW's "short interest". This figure is 24.5% down from 2,712 last month.

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

FFBW's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

FFBW's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FFBW shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FFBW shares traded daily (recently around 5535.1351351351). FFBW's SIR currently stands at 0.37. In other words for every 100,000 FFBW shares traded daily on the market, roughly 370 shares are currently held short.

However FFBW's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FFBW shares, or, against the total number of tradable FFBW shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FFBW's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FFBW shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0003% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FFBW shares, roughly 0 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 FFBW.

Have FFBW's shares ever split?

FFBW's shares were split on a 1172:1000 basis on 17 January 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1172 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your FFBW shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 14.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for FFBW shares which in turn could have impacted FFBW's share price.

FFBW share price volatility
