Valuing Malvern Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Malvern Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Malvern 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 20x. In other words, Malvern Bancorp shares trade at around 20x 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.

There are currently 22,648 Malvern Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Malvern Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 1.6% up from 22,283 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Malvern Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Malvern Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Malvern Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Malvern Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 7499.3377483444). Malvern Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.02. In other words for every 100,000 Malvern Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3020 shares are currently held short.
However Malvern Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Malvern Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Malvern Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Malvern Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Malvern Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0031% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Malvern Bancorp shares, roughly 3 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 Malvern Bancorp.

We're not expecting Malvern Bancorp to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Malvern Bancorp's shares were split on a 2687:2500 basis on 12 October 2012. So if you had owned 2500 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2687 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Malvern Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Malvern Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Malvern Bancorp's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Malvern Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.06 up to $22.18. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Malvern Bancorp's is 1.031. This would suggest that Malvern Bancorp's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
