Is First Mid Bancshares under- or over-valued?
Valuing First Mid Bancshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Mid Bancshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First Mid Bancshares's P/E ratio
First Mid Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, First Mid Bancshares shares trade at around 17x 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 Mid Bancshares's PEG ratio
First Mid Bancshares's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.88. 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 Mid Bancshares'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 Mid Bancshares shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Mid Bancshares shares can be evaluated.
First Mid Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
First Mid Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Mid Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Mid Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 50962.978723404). First Mid Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 4.7. In other words for every 100,000 First Mid Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4700 shares are currently held short.
However First Mid Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Mid Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Mid Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Mid Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Mid Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0176% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Mid Bancshares shares, roughly 18 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 Mid Bancshares.

First Mid Bancshares share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 27.33% of net profits
Recently First Mid Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 27.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Mid Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Mid Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $1.015 per share.
While First Mid Bancshares's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First Mid Bancshares may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
First Mid Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 31 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have First Mid Bancshares's shares ever split?
First Mid Bancshares's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 July 2007. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your First Mid Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Mid Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted First Mid Bancshares's share price.
First Mid Bancshares share price volatility
