Is Peoples Bancorp of North Carolina under- or over-valued?

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

Peoples Bancorp of North Carolina's P/E ratio
