Is it a good time to buy FVCBankcorp stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is FVCBankcorp under- or over-valued?

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

FVCBankcorp's P/E ratio

FVCBankcorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, FVCBankcorp shares trade at around 16x 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 FVCBankcorp shares

There are currently 130,972 FVCBankcorp shares held short by investors – that's known as FVCBankcorp's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% down from 135,421 last month.

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

FVCBankcorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

FVCBankcorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FVCBankcorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FVCBankcorp shares traded daily (recently around 30317.592592593). FVCBankcorp's SIR currently stands at 4.32. In other words for every 100,000 FVCBankcorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4320 shares are currently held short.

However FVCBankcorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FVCBankcorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable FVCBankcorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FVCBankcorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FVCBankcorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0127% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FVCBankcorp shares, roughly 13 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 FVCBankcorp.

Have FVCBankcorp's shares ever split?

FVCBankcorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 28 September 2017. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your FVCBankcorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for FVCBankcorp shares which in turn could have impacted FVCBankcorp's share price.

FVCBankcorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FVCBankcorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.35 up to $19.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while FVCBankcorp's is 0.3949. This would suggest that FVCBankcorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
