Is Financial Institutions stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 P/E ratio
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 6x. In other words, Financial Institutions shares trade at around 6x 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 PEG ratio
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.

Financial Institutions share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 27.27% of net profits
Recently Financial Institutions has paid out, on average, around 27.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.74% 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 4.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Financial Institutions's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 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 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Financial Institutions share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Financial Institutions's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.1578 up to $33.3652. 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 0.9876. This would suggest that Financial Institutions's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
