Is Howard Bancorp under- or over-valued?
Valuing Howard Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Howard Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Howard Bancorp's P/E ratio
Howard 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 16x. In other words, Howard Bancorp 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.

In this case Howard Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Howard Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0104% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Howard Bancorp shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).
