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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, First Republic Bank shares trade at around 20x 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 "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.65. 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.2 million First Republic Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as First Republic Bank's "short interest". This figure is 13.2% down from 3.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Republic Bank shares can be evaluated.
First Republic Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Republic Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Republic Bank shares traded daily (recently around 547964.42141623). First Republic Bank's SIR currently stands at 5.79. In other words for every 100,000 First Republic Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5790 shares are currently held short.
However First Republic Bank's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Republic Bank shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Republic Bank shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Republic Bank's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Republic Bank shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0186% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Republic Bank 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 Republic Bank.

Dividend payout ratio: 14.53% of net profits
Recently First Republic Bank has paid out, on average, around 14.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.79% 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 0.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Republic Bank's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 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 13 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 July 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, First Republic Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $77.56 up to $125.12. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while First Republic Bank's is 1.1355. 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).
