Is First Citizens BancShares stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 P/E ratio
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 15x. In other words, First Citizens BancShares shares trade at around 15x 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.

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 0.23% 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 share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, First Citizens BancShares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $597.664 up to $945.9106. 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 1.0376. 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).
