Is MainStreet Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

MainStreet Bancshares's P/E ratio

MainStreet 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 11x. In other words, MainStreet Bancshares shares trade at around 11x 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 MainStreet Bancshares shares

There are currently 120,413 MainStreet Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as MainStreet Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 8.3% down from 131,357 last month.

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

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

MainStreet Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MainStreet Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MainStreet Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 30954.498714653). MainStreet Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 3.89. In other words for every 100,000 MainStreet Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3890 shares are currently held short.

However MainStreet Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MainStreet Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable MainStreet Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MainStreet Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MainStreet Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0191% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MainStreet Bancshares shares, roughly 19 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 MainStreet Bancshares.

Have MainStreet Bancshares's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for MainStreet Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted MainStreet Bancshares's share price.
