Valuing Pacific Mercantile Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Pacific Mercantile Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Pacific Mercantile 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 21x. In other words, Pacific Mercantile Bancorp shares trade at around 21x 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 99,976 Pacific Mercantile Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Pacific Mercantile Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 14.9% up from 86,980 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pacific Mercantile Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Pacific Mercantile Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pacific Mercantile Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pacific Mercantile Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 27541.597796143). Pacific Mercantile Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.63. In other words for every 100,000 Pacific Mercantile Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3630 shares are currently held short.
However Pacific Mercantile Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pacific Mercantile Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pacific Mercantile Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pacific Mercantile Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pacific Mercantile Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0051% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pacific Mercantile Bancorp shares, roughly 5 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 Pacific Mercantile Bancorp.
