Is First Commonwealth Financial stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing First Commonwealth Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Commonwealth Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First Commonwealth Financial's P/E ratio
First Commonwealth Financial'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 Commonwealth Financial 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.
First Commonwealth Financial's PEG ratio
First Commonwealth Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.17. 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 First Commonwealth Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

First Commonwealth Financial share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 34.96% of net profits
Recently First Commonwealth Financial has paid out, on average, around 34.96% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Commonwealth Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Commonwealth Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.465 per share.
While First Commonwealth Financial's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First Commonwealth Financial may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
First Commonwealth Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 19 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have First Commonwealth Financial's shares ever split?
First Commonwealth Financial's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 November 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your First Commonwealth Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Commonwealth Financial shares which in turn could have impacted First Commonwealth Financial's share price.
First Commonwealth Financial share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, First Commonwealth Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.0818 up to $17.3591. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while First Commonwealth Financial's is 1.0281. This would suggest that First Commonwealth Financial'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).
