Valuing First Community Bankshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Community Bankshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First Community Bankshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, First Community Bankshares shares trade at around 11x 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 Community Bankshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.7. 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 Community Bankshares's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 141,412 First Community Bankshares shares held short by investors – that's known as First Community Bankshares's "short interest". This figure is 6% down from 150,514 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Community Bankshares shares can be evaluated.
First Community Bankshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Community Bankshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Community Bankshares shares traded daily (recently around 28859.591836735). First Community Bankshares's SIR currently stands at 4.9. In other words for every 100,000 First Community Bankshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4900 shares are currently held short.
However First Community Bankshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Community Bankshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Community Bankshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Community Bankshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Community Bankshares shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0082% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Community Bankshares shares, roughly 8 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 Community Bankshares.

Dividend payout ratio: 49.01% of net profits
Recently First Community Bankshares has paid out, on average, around 49.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Community Bankshares shareholders could enjoy a 4.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Community Bankshares's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
While First Community Bankshares's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First Community Bankshares may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
First Community Bankshares's most recent dividend payout was on 20 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
First Community Bankshares's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 30 July 2003. 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 Community Bankshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Community Bankshares shares which in turn could have impacted First Community Bankshares's share price.
Over the last 12 months, First Community Bankshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.9863 up to $30.1673. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
