Is Silvergate Capital Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Silvergate Capital Corporation's P/E ratio

Silvergate Capital Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 108x. In other words, Silvergate Capital Corporation shares trade at around 108x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Shorting Silvergate Capital Corporation shares

There are currently 919,795 Silvergate Capital Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Silvergate Capital Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 13.9% down from 1.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Silvergate Capital Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Silvergate Capital Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Silvergate Capital Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Silvergate Capital Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Silvergate Capital Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Silvergate Capital Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.66. In other words for every 100,000 Silvergate Capital Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 660 shares are currently held short.

However Silvergate Capital Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Silvergate Capital Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Silvergate Capital Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Silvergate Capital Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Silvergate Capital Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0457% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Silvergate Capital Corporation shares, roughly 46 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 Silvergate Capital Corporation.
