Is Farmers National Banc under- or over-valued?

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

Farmers National Banc's P/E ratio

Farmers National Banc's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Farmers National Banc shares trade at around 10x 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 Farmers National Banc shares

There are currently 247,528 Farmers National Banc shares held short by investors – that's known as Farmers National Banc's "short interest". This figure is 14.7% up from 215,871 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Farmers National Banc shares can be evaluated.

Farmers National Banc's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Farmers National Banc's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Farmers National Banc shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Farmers National Banc shares traded daily (recently around 75465.853658537). Farmers National Banc's SIR currently stands at 3.28. In other words for every 100,000 Farmers National Banc shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3280 shares are currently held short.

However Farmers National Banc's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Farmers National Banc shares, or, against the total number of tradable Farmers National Banc shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Farmers National Banc's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Farmers National Banc shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0096% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Farmers National Banc shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Farmers National Banc.

Farmers National Banc share dividends

21%

Dividend payout ratio: 21.15% of net profits

Recently Farmers National Banc has paid out, on average, around 21.15% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Farmers National Banc shareholders could enjoy a 2.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Farmers National Banc's case, that would currently equate to about $0.44 per share.

While Farmers National Banc's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Farmers National Banc is investing more in its future growth.

Farmers National Banc's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Farmers National Banc's shares ever split?

Farmers National Banc's shares were split on a 102:100 basis on 8 November 2004. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 102 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Farmers National Banc shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Farmers National Banc shares which in turn could have impacted Farmers National Banc's share price.

Farmers National Banc share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Farmers National Banc's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.4987 up to $18.26. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FMNB.US volatility(beta: 1.01)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 Farmers National Banc's is 1.0132. This would suggest that Farmers National Banc's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
