Is FS Bancorp under- or over-valued?
Valuing FS Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FS Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FS Bancorp's P/E ratio
FS Bancorp'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, FS Bancorp 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.

Shorting FS Bancorp shares
There are currently 25,929 FS Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as FS Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 30% down from 37,025 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FS Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
FS Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
FS Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FS Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FS Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 15619.879518072). FS Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 1.66. In other words for every 100,000 FS Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1660 shares are currently held short.
However FS Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FS Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable FS Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FS Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FS Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0067% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FS Bancorp shares, roughly 7 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 FS Bancorp.

FS Bancorp share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4.17% of net profits
Recently FS Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 4.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FS Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FS Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.445 per share.
While FS Bancorp's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that FS Bancorp is investing more in its future growth.
FS Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 5 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have FS Bancorp's shares ever split?
FS Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 July 2021. 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 FS Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for FS Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted FS Bancorp's share price.
FS Bancorp share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, FS Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.8874 up to $36.7772. 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 FS Bancorp's is 1.3009. This would suggest that FS Bancorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
