Valuing First Financial Bankshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Financial Bankshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First Financial 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 27x. In other words, First Financial Bankshares shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
First Financial Bankshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.69. 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 Financial 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 5.3 million First Financial Bankshares shares held short by investors – that's known as First Financial Bankshares's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% up from 5.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Financial Bankshares shares can be evaluated.
First Financial Bankshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Financial Bankshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Financial Bankshares shares traded daily (recently around 382878.34302326). First Financial Bankshares's SIR currently stands at 13.76. In other words for every 100,000 First Financial Bankshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13760 shares are currently held short.
However First Financial Bankshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Financial Bankshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Financial Bankshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Financial Bankshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Financial Bankshares shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0469% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Financial Bankshares shares, roughly 47 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against First Financial Bankshares.

Dividend payout ratio: 39.04% of net profits
Recently First Financial Bankshares has paid out, on average, around 39.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Financial Bankshares shareholders could enjoy a 1.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Financial Bankshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.52 per share.
While First Financial Bankshares's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First Financial Bankshares may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
First Financial Bankshares's most recent dividend payout was on 4 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
First Financial Bankshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 June 2019. 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 Financial Bankshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Financial Bankshares shares which in turn could have impacted First Financial Bankshares's share price.
Over the last 12 months, First Financial Bankshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.3409 up to $36.43. 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 Financial Bankshares's is 0.9953. This would suggest that First Financial Bankshares's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
