Is QCR under- or over-valued?
Valuing QCR stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of QCR's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
QCR's P/E ratio
QCR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, QCR shares trade at around 11x 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.
QCR's PEG ratio
QCR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.77. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into QCR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting QCR shares
There are currently 182,673 QCR shares held short by investors – that's known as QCR's "short interest". This figure is 23.9% up from 147,465 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting QCR shares can be evaluated.
QCR's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
QCR's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of QCR shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of QCR shares traded daily (recently around 76113.75). QCR's SIR currently stands at 2.4. In other words for every 100,000 QCR shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2400 shares are currently held short.
However QCR's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of QCR shares, or, against the total number of tradable QCR shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case QCR's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 QCR shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0123% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable QCR shares, roughly 12 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 QCR.

QCR share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 5.52% of net profits
Recently QCR has paid out, on average, around 5.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), QCR shareholders could enjoy a 0.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In QCR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.
While QCR's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that QCR is investing more in its future growth.
QCR's most recent dividend payout was on 6 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have QCR's shares ever split?
QCR's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 31 May 2004. 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 QCR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for QCR shares which in turn could have impacted QCR's share price.
QCR share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, QCR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.439 up to $50.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while QCR's is 1.1692. This would suggest that QCR's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
