Is PCB Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

PCB Bancorp's P/E ratio

PCB 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 14x. In other words, PCB Bancorp shares trade at around 14x 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 PCB Bancorp shares

There are currently 155,226 PCB Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as PCB Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 18.3% up from 131,211 last month.

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

PCB Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PCB Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PCB Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PCB Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 62090.4). PCB Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.5. In other words for every 100,000 PCB Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2500 shares are currently held short.

However PCB Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PCB Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable PCB Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PCB Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PCB Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0125% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PCB Bancorp shares, roughly 13 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 PCB Bancorp.

PCB Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 38.1% of net profits

Recently PCB Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 38.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PCB Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PCB Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.

While PCB Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that PCB Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

PCB Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 18 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
