Is The Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

The Bancorp's P/E ratio

The 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 18x. In other words, The Bancorp shares trade at around 18x 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.

The Bancorp's PEG ratio

The Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.46. 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 The Bancorp'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 The Bancorp shares

There are currently 1.7 million The Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as The Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% down from 1.8 million last month.

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

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

The Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 277268.64951768). The Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 6.22. In other words for every 100,000 The Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6220 shares are currently held short.

However The Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0316% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Bancorp shares, roughly 32 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against The Bancorp.

The Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, The Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.84 up to $30.76. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TBBK.US volatility(beta: 1.42)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 The Bancorp's is 1.4243. This would suggest that The Bancorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
