Valuing First Community Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Community Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First Community Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, First Community Corporation shares trade at around 13x 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 101,841 First Community Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as First Community Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 38.5% up from 73,551 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Community Corporation shares can be evaluated.
First Community Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Community Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Community Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 14047.034482759). First Community Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.25. In other words for every 100,000 First Community Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7250 shares are currently held short.
However First Community Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Community Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Community Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Community Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Community Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0143% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Community Corporation shares, roughly 14 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 Community Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 36.65% of net profits
Recently First Community Corporation has paid out, on average, around 36.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.73% 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 Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Community Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
While First Community Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First Community Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
First Community Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 16 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
First Community Corporation's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 1 March 2002. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your First Community Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Community Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted First Community Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, First Community Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.0438 up to $20.2168. 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 Community Corporation's is 0.7615. This would suggest that First Community Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
