Is Spirit of Texas Bancshares under- or over-valued?

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

Spirit of Texas Bancshares's P/E ratio

Spirit of Texas Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Spirit of Texas Bancshares shares trade at around 13x 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.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Spirit of Texas Bancshares shares can be evaluated.

Spirit of Texas Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Spirit of Texas Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Spirit of Texas Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Spirit of Texas Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 63785.057471264). Spirit of Texas Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 1.74. In other words for every 100,000 Spirit of Texas Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1740 shares are currently held short.

However Spirit of Texas Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Spirit of Texas Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable Spirit of Texas Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Spirit of Texas Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Spirit of Texas Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0085% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Spirit of Texas Bancshares shares, roughly 9 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 Spirit of Texas Bancshares.
