The Bottom Line On Midland States Bancorp's P/E RatioMidland States Bancorp has a P/E of 7.7. That's below the average in the US market, which is 13.4. While the EPS growth last year was strong, the significant debt levels reduce the number of options available to management. The low P/E ratio suggests current market expectations are muted, implying these levels of growth will not continue. What can be absolutely certain is that the market has become more pessimistic about Midland States Bancorp over the last month, with the P/E ratio falling from 11.0 back then to 7.7 today. For those who prefer to invest with the flow of momentum, that might be a bad sign, but for deep value investors this stock might justify some research.
