Is Village Bank and Trust Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Village Bank and Trust Financial's P/E ratio

Village Bank and Trust Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Village Bank and Trust Financial shares trade at around 7x 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 Village Bank and Trust Financial shares

There are currently 392 Village Bank and Trust Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Village Bank and Trust Financial's "short interest". This figure is 3.4% up from 379 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Village Bank and Trust Financial shares can be evaluated.

Village Bank and Trust Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Village Bank and Trust Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Village Bank and Trust Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Village Bank and Trust Financial shares traded daily (recently around 834.04255319149). Village Bank and Trust Financial's SIR currently stands at 0.47. In other words for every 100,000 Village Bank and Trust Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 470 shares are currently held short.

However Village Bank and Trust Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Village Bank and Trust Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Village Bank and Trust Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Village Bank and Trust Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Village Bank and Trust Financial shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0007% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Village Bank and Trust Financial shares, roughly 1 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 Village Bank and Trust Financial.
