Is First Savings Financial Group under- or over-valued?

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

First Savings Financial Group's P/E ratio

First Savings Financial Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, First Savings Financial Group shares trade at around 4x 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 Savings Financial Group shares

There are currently 15,294 First Savings Financial Group shares held short by investors – that's known as First Savings Financial Group's "short interest". This figure is 1.6% up from 15,056 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First Savings Financial Group shares can be evaluated.

First Savings Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

First Savings Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First Savings Financial Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First Savings Financial Group shares traded daily (recently around 5905.0193050193). First Savings Financial Group's SIR currently stands at 2.59. In other words for every 100,000 First Savings Financial Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2590 shares are currently held short.

However First Savings Financial Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First Savings Financial Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable First Savings Financial Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First Savings Financial Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First Savings Financial Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0085% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First Savings Financial Group shares, roughly 9 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 Savings Financial Group.

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 4.05% of net profits

Recently First Savings Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 4.05% of net profits as dividends.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Savings Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Savings Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.

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

First Savings Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 31 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
