Valuing First US Bancshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First US Bancshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First US Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, First US Bancshares shares trade at around 25x 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 3,359 First US Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as First US Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 25.2% up from 2,682 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First US Bancshares shares can be evaluated.
First US Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First US Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First US Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 7464.4444444444). First US Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 0.45. In other words for every 100,000 First US Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 450 shares are currently held short.
However First US Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First US Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable First US Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First US Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 First US Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0006% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable First US Bancshares shares, roughly 1 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 US Bancshares.

Dividend payout ratio: 28.96% of net profits
Recently First US Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 28.96% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First US Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 1.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First US Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.
While First US Bancshares's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First US Bancshares may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
First US Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 31 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
First US Bancshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 July 2003. 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 US Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First US Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted First US Bancshares's share price.
Over the last 12 months, First US Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.6239 up to $10.498. 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 US Bancshares's is 1.765. This would suggest that First US Bancshares's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
