Valuing First Hawaiian stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Hawaiian's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First Hawaiian's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, First Hawaiian shares trade at around 10x 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 Hawaiian's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.05. 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 Hawaiian'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 7.4 million First Hawaiian shares held short by investors – that's known as First Hawaiian's "short interest". This figure is 9.8% down from 8.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Hawaiian shares can be evaluated.
First Hawaiian's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Hawaiian shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Hawaiian shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). First Hawaiian's SIR currently stands at 5.52. In other words for every 100,000 First Hawaiian shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5520 shares are currently held short.
However First Hawaiian's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Hawaiian shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Hawaiian shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Hawaiian's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Hawaiian shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0569% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Hawaiian shares, roughly 57 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 Hawaiian.

Dividend payout ratio: 66.24% of net profits
Recently First Hawaiian has paid out, on average, around 66.24% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Hawaiian shareholders could enjoy a 6.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Hawaiian's case, that would currently equate to about $1.04 per share.
First Hawaiian's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
First Hawaiian's most recent dividend payout was on 4 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, First Hawaiian's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.555 up to $30.9. 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 Hawaiian's is 1.2676. This would suggest that First Hawaiian's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
