Valuing National Bankshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of National Bankshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
National Bankshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, National Bankshares shares trade at around 12x 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 47,082 National Bankshares shares held short by investors – that's known as National Bankshares's "short interest". This figure is 23% down from 61,129 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting National Bankshares shares can be evaluated.
National Bankshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of National Bankshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of National Bankshares shares traded daily (recently around 7860.1001669449). National Bankshares's SIR currently stands at 5.99. In other words for every 100,000 National Bankshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5990 shares are currently held short.
However National Bankshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of National Bankshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable National Bankshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case National Bankshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 National Bankshares shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0078% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable National Bankshares shares, roughly 8 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against National Bankshares.

Dividend payout ratio: 48.64% of net profits
Recently National Bankshares has paid out, on average, around 48.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), National Bankshares shareholders could enjoy a 3.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In National Bankshares's case, that would currently equate to about $1.42 per share.
While National Bankshares's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that National Bankshares may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
National Bankshares's most recent dividend payout was on 31 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
National Bankshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 April 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 National Bankshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for National Bankshares shares which in turn could have impacted National Bankshares's share price.
Over the last 12 months, National Bankshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.6785 up to $39.2109. 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 National Bankshares's is 0.5439. This would suggest that National Bankshares's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
