Is Esquire Financial under- or over-valued?

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

Esquire Financial's P/E ratio

Esquire 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 18x. In other words, Esquire Financial 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.

Esquire Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Esquire Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.01 up to $37.51. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ESQ.US volatility(beta: 1.06)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 Esquire Financial's is 1.064. This would suggest that Esquire Financial's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
