Valuing Premier Financial Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Premier Financial Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Premier Financial 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 11x. In other words, Premier Financial Bancorp shares trade at around 11x 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 109,643 Premier Financial Bancorp shares held short by investors – that's known as Premier Financial Bancorp's "short interest". This figure is 9.6% up from 100,064 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Premier Financial Bancorp shares can be evaluated.
Premier Financial Bancorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Premier Financial Bancorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Premier Financial Bancorp shares traded daily (recently around 18243.427620632). Premier Financial Bancorp's SIR currently stands at 6.01. In other words for every 100,000 Premier Financial Bancorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6010 shares are currently held short.
However Premier Financial Bancorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Premier Financial Bancorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Premier Financial Bancorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Premier Financial Bancorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Premier Financial Bancorp shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.008% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Premier Financial Bancorp 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 Premier Financial Bancorp.

Dividend payout ratio: 94.43% of net profits
Recently Premier Financial Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 94.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Premier Financial Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 3.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Premier Financial Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
Premier Financial Bancorp's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Premier Financial Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Premier Financial Bancorp's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 10 June 2018. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Premier Financial Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Premier Financial Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted Premier Financial Bancorp's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Premier Financial Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.9429 up to $18.9803. 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 Premier Financial Bancorp's is 0.8352. This would suggest that Premier Financial Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
