Is Select Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

Select Bancorp's P/E ratio

Select 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 26x. In other words, Select Bancorp shares trade at around 26x 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 Select Bancorp shares

There are currently 188,853 Select Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Select Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% up from 174,503 last month.

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

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

Select Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Select Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Select Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 49829.287598945). Select Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 3.79. In other words for every 100,000 Select Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3790 shares are currently held short.

However Select Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Select Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Select Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Select Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Select Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0123% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Select Bancorp 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 Select Bancorp.

Have Select Bancorp's shares ever split?

Select Bancorp's shares were split on a 6:5 basis on 23 November 2006. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 6 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Select Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 16.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Select Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Select Bancorp's share price.

Select Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Select Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.98 up to $12.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SLCT.US volatility(beta: 0.89)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Select Bancorp's is 0.893. This would suggest that Select Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
