Valuing First Midwest Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Midwest Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First Midwest Bancorp'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 Midwest Bancorp 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 Midwest Bancorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.56. 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 Midwest Bancorp'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 2.9 million First Midwest Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as First Midwest Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 15.1% up from 2.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Midwest Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
First Midwest Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Midwest Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Midwest Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 614042.55765199). First Midwest Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 4.77. In other words for every 100,000 First Midwest Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4770 shares are currently held short.
However First Midwest Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Midwest Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Midwest Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Midwest Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Midwest Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.034% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Midwest Bancorp shares, roughly 34 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 Midwest Bancorp.

Dividend payout ratio: 44.8% of net profits
Recently First Midwest Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 44.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Midwest Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Midwest Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
While First Midwest Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First Midwest Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
First Midwest Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 12 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
First Midwest Bancorp's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 17 December 2001. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your First Midwest Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Midwest Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted First Midwest Bancorp's share price.
Over the last 12 months, First Midwest Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.9726 up to $22.2816. 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 Midwest Bancorp's is 1.2614. This would suggest that First Midwest Bancorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
