Is First Interstate BancSystem under- or over-valued?

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

First Interstate BancSystem's P/E ratio

First Interstate BancSystem's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, First Interstate BancSystem shares trade at around 16x 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 Interstate BancSystem's PEG ratio

First Interstate BancSystem's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.84. 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 Interstate BancSystem's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting First Interstate BancSystem shares

There are currently 1.1 million First Interstate BancSystem shares held short by investors – that's known as First Interstate BancSystem's "short interest". This figure is 0.5% down from 1.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Interstate BancSystem shares can be evaluated.

First Interstate BancSystem's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

First Interstate BancSystem's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Interstate BancSystem shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Interstate BancSystem shares traded daily (recently around 179602.07667732). First Interstate BancSystem's SIR currently stands at 6.26. In other words for every 100,000 First Interstate BancSystem shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6260 shares are currently held short.

However First Interstate BancSystem's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Interstate BancSystem shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Interstate BancSystem shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Interstate BancSystem's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Interstate BancSystem shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.1067% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Interstate BancSystem shares, roughly 107 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 Interstate BancSystem.

First Interstate BancSystem share dividends

46%

Dividend payout ratio: 45.56% of net profits

Recently First Interstate BancSystem has paid out, on average, around 45.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Interstate BancSystem shareholders could enjoy a 3.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Interstate BancSystem's case, that would currently equate to about $1.54 per share.

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

First Interstate BancSystem's most recent dividend payout was on 18 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

First Interstate BancSystem share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Interstate BancSystem's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.7936 up to $51.24. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FIBK.US volatility(beta: 1.17)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while First Interstate BancSystem's is 1.1699. This would suggest that First Interstate BancSystem's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
