Is Metropolitan Bank Holding under- or over-valued?

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

Metropolitan Bank Holding's P/E ratio

Metropolitan Bank Holding's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Metropolitan Bank Holding shares trade at around 9x 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 Metropolitan Bank Holding shares

There are currently 59,705 Metropolitan Bank Holding shares held short by investors – that's known as Metropolitan Bank Holding's "short interest". This figure is 15.7% up from 51,598 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Metropolitan Bank Holding shares can be evaluated.

Metropolitan Bank Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Metropolitan Bank Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Metropolitan Bank Holding shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Metropolitan Bank Holding shares traded daily (recently around 20587.931034483). Metropolitan Bank Holding's SIR currently stands at 2.9. In other words for every 100,000 Metropolitan Bank Holding shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2900 shares are currently held short.

However Metropolitan Bank Holding's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Metropolitan Bank Holding shares, or, against the total number of tradable Metropolitan Bank Holding shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Metropolitan Bank Holding's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Metropolitan Bank Holding shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0083% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Metropolitan Bank Holding shares, roughly 8 shares are currently held short).
