Is First Republic Bank stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

First Republic Bank's P/E ratio

First Republic Bank'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 Republic Bank 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 Republic Bank's PEG ratio

First Republic Bank's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0507. 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 Republic Bank'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 Republic Bank share dividends

11%

Dividend payout ratio: 10.52% of net profits

Recently First Republic Bank has paid out, on average, around 10.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Republic Bank shareholders could enjoy a 0.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Republic Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.

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

First Republic Bank's most recent dividend payout was on 8 February 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

First Republic Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Republic Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $106.86 up to $180.6949. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FRC.US volatility(beta: 1.08)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while First Republic Bank's is 1.0774. This would suggest that First Republic Bank'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).
