Is Limestone Bancorp under- or over-valued?
Valuing Limestone Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Limestone Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Limestone Bancorp's P/E ratio
Limestone 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 12x. In other words, Limestone Bancorp shares trade at around 12x 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 Limestone Bancorp shares
There are currently 174,234 Limestone Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Limestone Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 32.7% up from 131,264 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Limestone Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Limestone Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Limestone Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Limestone Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Limestone Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 10285.360094451). Limestone Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 16.94. In other words for every 100,000 Limestone Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 16940 shares are currently held short.
However Limestone Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Limestone Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Limestone Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Limestone Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Limestone Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.045% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Limestone Bancorp shares, roughly 45 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Limestone Bancorp.

However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Limestone Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Limestone Bancorp's share price.
