Is First Capital under- or over-valued?

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

First Capital's P/E ratio

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

There are currently 49,318 First Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as First Capital's "short interest". This figure is 10.5% down from 55,106 last month.

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

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

First Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Capital shares traded daily (recently around 2867.3255813953). First Capital's SIR currently stands at 17.2. In other words for every 100,000 First Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17200 shares are currently held short.

However First Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Capital shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0153% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Capital shares, roughly 15 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against First Capital.

First Capital share dividends

30%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.34% of net profits

Recently First Capital has paid out, on average, around 30.34% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Capital shareholders could enjoy a 2.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.

While First Capital's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First Capital may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

First Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have First Capital's shares ever split?

First Capital's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 16 July 2006. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your First Capital shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Capital shares which in turn could have impacted First Capital's share price.

First Capital share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40 up to $69.4914. 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 First Capital's is -0.0101. This would suggest that First Capital's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, First Capital has bucked the trend.
