Is First Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing First Financial Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Financial Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First Financial Corporation's P/E ratio
First Financial 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 9x. In other words, First Financial Corporation shares trade at around 9x 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.

Shorting First Financial Corporation shares
There are currently 150,609 First Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as First Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.2% up from 144,571 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Financial Corporation shares can be evaluated.
First Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
First Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 113239.84962406). First Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.33. In other words for every 100,000 First Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1330 shares are currently held short.
However First Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0119% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Financial Corporation shares, roughly 12 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 Financial Corporation.

First Financial Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 24.32% of net profits
Recently First Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 24.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.63% 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 Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.06 per share.
While First Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that First Financial Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
First Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have First Financial Corporation's shares ever split?
First Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 October 2003. 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 Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted First Financial Corporation's share price.
First Financial Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, First Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.2939 up to $46.4482. 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 Corporation's is 0.8335. This would suggest that First Financial Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
