Is Professional Holding under- or over-valued?

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

Professional Holding's P/E ratio

Professional Holding's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, Professional Holding shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Shorting Professional Holding shares

There are currently 96,373 Professional Holding shares held short by investors – that's known as Professional Holding's "short interest". This figure is 6.2% up from 90,740 last month.

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

Professional Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Professional Holding's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Professional Holding shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Professional Holding shares traded daily (recently around 33696.853146853). Professional Holding's SIR currently stands at 2.86. In other words for every 100,000 Professional Holding shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2860 shares are currently held short.

However Professional Holding's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Professional Holding shares, or, against the total number of tradable Professional Holding shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Professional Holding's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Professional Holding shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0077% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Professional Holding shares, roughly 8 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 Professional Holding.
