Valuing Financial Institutions stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Financial Institutions's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Financial Institutions's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Financial Institutions shares trade at around 7x 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.
Financial Institutions's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.91. 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 Financial Institutions'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 126,940 Financial Institutions shares held short by investors – that's known as Financial Institutions's "short interest". This figure is 27.9% down from 175,985 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Financial Institutions shares can be evaluated.
Financial Institutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Financial Institutions shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Financial Institutions shares traded daily (recently around 76933.333333333). Financial Institutions's SIR currently stands at 1.65. In other words for every 100,000 Financial Institutions shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1650 shares are currently held short.
However Financial Institutions's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Financial Institutions shares, or, against the total number of tradable Financial Institutions shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Financial Institutions's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Financial Institutions shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0081% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Financial Institutions shares, roughly 8 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 Financial Institutions.

Dividend payout ratio: 44.98% of net profits
Recently Financial Institutions has paid out, on average, around 44.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Financial Institutions shareholders could enjoy a 6.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Financial Institutions's case, that would currently equate to about $1.04 per share.
While Financial Institutions's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Financial Institutions may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Financial Institutions's most recent dividend payout was on 2 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Financial Institutions's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.78 up to $33.28. 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 Financial Institutions's is 1.1555. This would suggest that Financial Institutions'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).
