Is Bank First Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Bank First Corporation's P/E ratio

Bank First 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 12x. In other words, Bank First Corporation shares trade at around 12x 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 Bank First Corporation shares

There are currently 218,295 Bank First Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Bank First Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% down from 220,634 last month.

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

Bank First Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bank First Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bank First Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bank First Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 8899.1031390135). Bank First Corporation's SIR currently stands at 24.53. In other words for every 100,000 Bank First Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 24530 shares are currently held short.

However Bank First Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bank First Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bank First Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bank First Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bank First Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0336% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bank First Corporation shares, roughly 34 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Bank First Corporation.

Bank First Corporation share dividends

19%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.11% of net profits

Recently Bank First Corporation has paid out, on average, around 19.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bank First Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bank First Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.83 per share.

While Bank First Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bank First Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Bank First Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 5 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Bank First Corporation's shares ever split?

Bank First Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 October 2002. 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 Bank First Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bank First Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Bank First Corporation's share price.

Bank First Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bank First Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $60.9403 up to $75.9887. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Bank First Corporation's is 0.3646. This would suggest that Bank First Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
