Is BancFirst Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

BancFirst Corporation's P/E ratio

BancFirst Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, BancFirst Corporation shares trade at around 13x 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.

BancFirst Corporation's PEG ratio

BancFirst Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.08. 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 BancFirst Corporation'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 BancFirst Corporation shares

There are currently 820,720 BancFirst Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as BancFirst Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 12.1% down from 933,520 last month.

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

BancFirst Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BancFirst Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BancFirst Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BancFirst Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 129655.60821485). BancFirst Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.33. In other words for every 100,000 BancFirst Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6330 shares are currently held short.

However BancFirst Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BancFirst Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable BancFirst Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BancFirst Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BancFirst Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0431% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BancFirst Corporation shares, roughly 43 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 BancFirst Corporation.

BancFirst Corporation share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.98% of net profits

Recently BancFirst Corporation has paid out, on average, around 26.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BancFirst Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BancFirst Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.36 per share.

While BancFirst Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that BancFirst Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

BancFirst Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have BancFirst Corporation's shares ever split?

BancFirst Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 July 2017. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BancFirst Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BancFirst Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted BancFirst Corporation's share price.

BancFirst Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BancFirst Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.5838 up to $76.5927. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BANF.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 BancFirst Corporation's is 1.4499. This would suggest that BancFirst Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
