Valuing First Citizens BancShares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Citizens BancShares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First Citizens BancShares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, First Citizens BancShares shares trade at around 14x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 238,855 First Citizens BancShares shares held short by investors – that's known as First Citizens BancShares's "short interest". This figure is 8.6% up from 219,864 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Citizens BancShares shares can be evaluated.
First Citizens BancShares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Citizens BancShares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Citizens BancShares shares traded daily (recently around 43907.169117647). First Citizens BancShares's SIR currently stands at 5.44. In other words for every 100,000 First Citizens BancShares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5440 shares are currently held short.
However First Citizens BancShares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Citizens BancShares shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Citizens BancShares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Citizens BancShares's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Citizens BancShares shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0545% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Citizens BancShares shares, roughly 55 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against First Citizens BancShares.

Dividend payout ratio: 3.46% of net profits
Recently First Citizens BancShares has paid out, on average, around 3.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.32% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Citizens BancShares shareholders could enjoy a 0.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Citizens BancShares's case, that would currently equate to about $1.88 per share.
While First Citizens BancShares's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that First Citizens BancShares is investing more in its future growth.
First Citizens BancShares's most recent dividend payout was on 4 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, First Citizens BancShares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $275.277 up to $615.4015. 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 Citizens BancShares's is 1.1717. This would suggest that First Citizens BancShares'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).
