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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, FS Bancorp shares trade at around 8x 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 43,594 FS Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as FS Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 73.6% up from 25,108 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) is the quantity of FS Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FS Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 10330.331753555). FS Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 4.22. In other words for every 100,000 FS Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4220 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 0.0118% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FS Bancorp shares, roughly 12 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.

Dividend payout ratio: 10.94% of net profits
Recently FS Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 10.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.45% 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 1.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FS Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 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 19 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, FS Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.0779 up to $62.7256. 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 1.263. 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).
