Is Guaranty Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

Guaranty Bancshares's P/E ratio

Guaranty 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 15x. In other words, Guaranty Bancshares shares trade at around 15x 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 Guaranty Bancshares shares

There are currently 194,145 Guaranty Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as Guaranty Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% down from 207,429 last month.

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

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

Guaranty Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Guaranty Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Guaranty Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 38751.497005988). Guaranty Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 5.01. In other words for every 100,000 Guaranty Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5010 shares are currently held short.

However Guaranty Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Guaranty Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Guaranty Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Guaranty Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Guaranty Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0241% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Guaranty Bancshares shares, roughly 24 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Guaranty Bancshares.

In Guaranty Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.718 per share.

While Guaranty Bancshares's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Guaranty Bancshares is investing more in its future growth.
