Is First Bank under- or over-valued?

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

First Bank's P/E ratio

First Bank'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, First Bank 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 First Bank shares

There are currently 169,350 First Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as First Bank's "short interest". This figure is 10.6% down from 189,466 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Bank shares can be evaluated.

First Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

First Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Bank shares traded daily (recently around 54983.766233766). First Bank's SIR currently stands at 3.08. In other words for every 100,000 First Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3080 shares are currently held short.

However First Bank's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Bank shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Bank shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Bank's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Bank shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0112% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Bank shares, roughly 11 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 First Bank.

First Bank share dividends

11%

Dividend payout ratio: 10.91% of net profits

Recently First Bank has paid out, on average, around 10.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Bank shareholders could enjoy a 0.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.

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

First Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 20 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

First Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.9989 up to $14.4099. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FRBA.US volatility(beta: 0.97)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 First Bank's is 0.9684. This would suggest that First Bank's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
