Valuing Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares trade at around 14x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 221,098 Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% down from 231,048 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 9870.4464285714). Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 22.4. In other words for every 100,000 Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 22400 shares are currently held short.
However Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.022% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares, roughly 22 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 Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp.

Dividend payout ratio: 40% of net profits
Recently Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 40% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 2.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
While Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 20 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 September 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 Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.0102 up to $30.2072. 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 Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's is 0.3097. This would suggest that Farmers-and-Merchants Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
