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

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1,671 First National Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as First National Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 198.4% up from 560 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First National Corporation shares can be evaluated.
First National Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First National Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First National Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 5221.875). First National Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.32. In other words for every 100,000 First National Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 320 shares are currently held short.
However First National Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First National Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable First National Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First National Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First National Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0004% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First National Corporation shares, roughly 0 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 National Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 28.92% of net profits
Recently First National Corporation has paid out, on average, around 28.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First National Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First National Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.44 per share.
While First National Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First National Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
First National Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
First National Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 May 2005. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your First National Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First National Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted First National Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, First National Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.2876 up to $20.8676. 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 National Corporation's is 0.5774. This would suggest that First National Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
