Is RBB Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

RBB Bancorp's P/E ratio

RBB 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 11x. In other words, RBB Bancorp 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.

Shorting RBB Bancorp shares

There are currently 160,367 RBB Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as RBB Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 9.2% up from 146,880 last month.

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

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

RBB Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of RBB Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of RBB Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 38273.747016706). RBB Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 4.19. In other words for every 100,000 RBB Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4190 shares are currently held short.

However RBB Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of RBB Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable RBB Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case RBB Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 RBB Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0129% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable RBB 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 RBB Bancorp.
