Valuing FirstCash stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FirstCash's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FirstCash's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, FirstCash shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
FirstCash's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.28. 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 FirstCash's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
FirstCash's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $230.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a FirstCash's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.1 million FirstCash shares held short by investors – that's known as FirstCash's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FirstCash shares can be evaluated.
FirstCash's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FirstCash shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FirstCash shares traded daily (recently around 223359.66735967). FirstCash's SIR currently stands at 4.81. In other words for every 100,000 FirstCash shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4810 shares are currently held short.
However FirstCash's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FirstCash shares, or, against the total number of tradable FirstCash shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FirstCash's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FirstCash shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0351% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FirstCash shares, roughly 35 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 FirstCash.

Dividend payout ratio: 28.76% of net profits
Recently FirstCash has paid out, on average, around 28.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FirstCash shareholders could enjoy a 1.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FirstCash's case, that would currently equate to about $1.08 per share.
While FirstCash's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that FirstCash may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
FirstCash's most recent dividend payout was on 27 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
FirstCash's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 February 2006. 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 FirstCash shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for FirstCash shares which in turn could have impacted FirstCash's share price.
Over the last 12 months, FirstCash's shares have ranged in value from as little as $50.7039 up to $76.2457. 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 FirstCash's is 0.7827. This would suggest that FirstCash's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
