Is First Financial Northwest stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing First Financial Northwest stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Financial Northwest's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

First Financial Northwest's P/E ratio

First Financial Northwest'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 Financial Northwest 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 Financial Northwest's PEG ratio

First Financial Northwest's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.96. 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 Northwest'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 Financial Northwest share dividends

33%

Dividend payout ratio: 33.09% of net profits

Recently First Financial Northwest has paid out, on average, around 33.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.11% 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 Northwest shareholders could enjoy a 3.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Financial Northwest's case, that would currently equate to about $0.45 per share.

While First Financial Northwest's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First Financial Northwest may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

First Financial Northwest's most recent dividend payout was on 16 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

First Financial Northwest share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Financial Northwest's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.9003 up to $17.8214. 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 Northwest's is 0.4546. This would suggest that First Financial Northwest's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
