Is Franklin Financial Services Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Franklin Financial Services Corporation's P/E ratio

Franklin Financial Services Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Franklin Financial Services Corporation shares trade at around 7x 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.

Franklin Financial Services Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 25.5% of net profits

Recently Franklin Financial Services Corporation has paid out, on average, around 25.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.81% 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 Services Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Franklin Financial Services Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.23 per share.

While Franklin Financial Services Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Franklin Financial Services Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Franklin Financial Services Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 23 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Franklin Financial Services Corporation's shares ever split?

Franklin Financial Services Corporation's shares were split on a 125:100 basis on 28 June 2004. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 125 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Franklin Financial Services Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Franklin Financial Services Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Franklin Financial Services Corporation's share price.

Franklin Financial Services Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Franklin Financial Services Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.1659 up to $34.2232. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FRAF.US volatility(beta: 0.79)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
