Valuing Fifth Third Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Fifth Third Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Fifth Third 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 11x. In other words, Fifth Third Bancorp shares trade at around 11x 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.
Fifth Third Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.7773. 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 Fifth Third Bancorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 15.1 million Fifth Third Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Fifth Third Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 22.6% up from 12.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Fifth Third Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Fifth Third Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fifth Third Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fifth Third Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 7.1 million). Fifth Third Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 2.12. In other words for every 100,000 Fifth Third Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2120 shares are currently held short.
However Fifth Third Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fifth Third Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fifth Third Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fifth Third Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fifth Third Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0157% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fifth Third Bancorp shares, roughly 16 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 Fifth Third Bancorp.

Recently Fifth Third Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 52.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fifth Third Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 5.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fifth Third Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.
Fifth Third Bancorp's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Fifth Third Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 15 July 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Fifth Third Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 17 July 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Fifth Third Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fifth Third Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Fifth Third Bancorp's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Fifth Third Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.1 up to $31.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
