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

Shorting Lake Shore Bancorp shares
There are currently 6,134 Lake Shore Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Lake Shore Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 81.8% up from 3,374 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lake Shore Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Lake Shore Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Lake Shore Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lake Shore Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lake Shore Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 2463.453815261). Lake Shore Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.49. In other words for every 100,000 Lake Shore Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2490 shares are currently held short.
However Lake Shore Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lake Shore Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lake Shore Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lake Shore Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lake Shore Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0035% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lake Shore Bancorp shares, roughly 4 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 Lake Shore Bancorp.
