Is Plumas Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Plumas Bancorp's P/E ratio

Plumas 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 9x. In other words, Plumas Bancorp 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 Plumas Bancorp shares

There are currently 69,074 Plumas Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Plumas Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 73.6% up from 39,794 last month.

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

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

Plumas Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Plumas Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Plumas Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 9606.9541029207). Plumas Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 7.19. In other words for every 100,000 Plumas Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7190 shares are currently held short.

However Plumas Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Plumas Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Plumas Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Plumas Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Plumas Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0147% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Plumas Bancorp shares, roughly 15 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 Plumas Bancorp.

Plumas Bancorp share dividends

23%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.36% of net profits

Recently Plumas Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 23.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Plumas Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Plumas Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.

While Plumas Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Plumas Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.

Plumas Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 15 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Plumas Bancorp's shares ever split?

Plumas Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 19 September 2005. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Plumas Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Plumas Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Plumas Bancorp's share price.

Plumas Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Plumas Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.6466 up to $25.8349. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PLBC.US volatility(beta: 0.66)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
