Is First Midwest Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

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 P/E ratio

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 15x. In other words, First Midwest Bancorp shares trade at around 15x 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 PEG ratio

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.

First Midwest Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 32.56% of net profits

Recently First Midwest Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 32.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.48% 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 2.48% 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 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have First Midwest Bancorp's shares ever split?

First Midwest Bancorp's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 16 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.

First Midwest Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Midwest Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.9307 up to $23.5996. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FMBI.US volatility(beta: 1.15)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 Midwest Bancorp's is 1.147. This would suggest that First Midwest Bancorp'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).
