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 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 Financial Northwest 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.
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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 79,148 First Financial Northwest shares held short by investors – that's known as First Financial Northwest's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% down from 81,337 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Financial Northwest shares can be evaluated.
First Financial Northwest's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Financial Northwest shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Financial Northwest shares traded daily (recently around 11537.609329446). First Financial Northwest's SIR currently stands at 6.86. In other words for every 100,000 First Financial Northwest shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6860 shares are currently held short.
However First Financial Northwest's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Financial Northwest shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Financial Northwest shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Financial Northwest's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Financial Northwest shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0096% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Financial Northwest shares, roughly 10 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 Financial Northwest.

Dividend payout ratio: 46.51% of net profits
Recently First Financial Northwest has paid out, on average, around 46.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.37% 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 3.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Financial Northwest's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 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 18 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, First Financial Northwest's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.765 up to $14.887. 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 0.5559. This would suggest that First Financial Northwest's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
