Is First Northwest Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

First Northwest Bancorp's P/E ratio

First Northwest 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 Northwest 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.

Shorting First Northwest Bancorp shares

There are currently 164,299 First Northwest Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as First Northwest Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 11.3% up from 147,674 last month.

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

First Northwest Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

First Northwest Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Northwest Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Northwest Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 23880.668604651). First Northwest Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 6.88. In other words for every 100,000 First Northwest Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6880 shares are currently held short.

However First Northwest Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Northwest Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Northwest Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Northwest Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Northwest Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0189% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Northwest Bancorp shares, roughly 19 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 Northwest Bancorp.

First Northwest Bancorp share dividends

17%

Dividend payout ratio: 16.51% of net profits

Recently First Northwest Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 16.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Northwest Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Northwest Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.21 per share.

While First Northwest Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that First Northwest Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.

First Northwest Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 25 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

First Northwest Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Northwest Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.3743 up to $18.74. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FNWB.US volatility(beta: 1.02)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 Northwest Bancorp's is 1.021. This would suggest that First Northwest 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).
