Is Nicolet Bankshares under- or over-valued?

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

Nicolet Bankshares's P/E ratio

Nicolet Bankshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Nicolet Bankshares shares trade at around 13x 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 a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Nicolet Bankshares shares can be evaluated.

Nicolet Bankshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In this case Nicolet Bankshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nicolet Bankshares shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0248% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nicolet Bankshares shares, roughly 25 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Nicolet Bankshares.
