Is Franklin Financial Network under- or over-valued?

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

Franklin Financial Network's P/E ratio

Franklin Financial Network's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Franklin Financial Network shares trade at around 30x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Franklin Financial Network's PEG ratio

Franklin Financial Network's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.28. 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 Franklin Financial Network's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Franklin Financial Network shares

There are currently 248,643 Franklin Financial Network shares held short by investors – that's known as Franklin Financial Network's "short interest". This figure is 0.1% up from 248,334 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Franklin Financial Network shares can be evaluated.

Franklin Financial Network's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Franklin Financial Network's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Franklin Financial Network shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Franklin Financial Network shares traded daily (recently around 58230.210772834). Franklin Financial Network's SIR currently stands at 4.27. In other words for every 100,000 Franklin Financial Network shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4270 shares are currently held short.

However Franklin Financial Network's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Franklin Financial Network shares, or, against the total number of tradable Franklin Financial Network shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Franklin Financial Network's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Franklin Financial Network shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0201% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Franklin Financial Network shares, roughly 20 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 Franklin Financial Network.

Franklin Financial Network share dividends

9%

Dividend payout ratio: 8.76% of net profits

Recently Franklin Financial Network has paid out, on average, around 8.76% 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), Franklin Financial Network shareholders could enjoy a 0.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Franklin Financial Network's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.

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

Franklin Financial Network's most recent dividend payout was on 29 May 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Franklin Financial Network's shares ever split?

Franklin Financial Network's shares were split on a 40:1 basis on 4 December 2012. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 40 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Franklin Financial Network shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 97.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Franklin Financial Network shares which in turn could have impacted Franklin Financial Network's share price.

Franklin Financial Network share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Franklin Financial Network's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.97 up to $38.8243. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FSB.US volatility(beta: 1.57)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 Franklin Financial Network's is 1.572. This would suggest that Franklin Financial Network's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
