West Coast Bancorp (WCBO) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2012-06-30. West Coast Bancorp has a market cap of $383.2 million; its shares were traded at around $19.73 with a P/E ratio of 11.9 and P/S ratio of 2.9.

Earnings per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2012, was $0.28, as compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.22 for the three months ended June 30, 2011.
