Valuing ServisFirst Bancshares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ServisFirst Bancshares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ServisFirst Bancshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, ServisFirst Bancshares shares trade at around 16x 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 1.5 million ServisFirst Bancshares shares held short by investors – that's known as ServisFirst Bancshares's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% down from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ServisFirst Bancshares shares can be evaluated.
ServisFirst Bancshares's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ServisFirst Bancshares shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ServisFirst Bancshares shares traded daily (recently around 147574.13793103). ServisFirst Bancshares's SIR currently stands at 9.86. In other words for every 100,000 ServisFirst Bancshares shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9860 shares are currently held short.
However ServisFirst Bancshares's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ServisFirst Bancshares shares, or, against the total number of tradable ServisFirst Bancshares shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ServisFirst Bancshares's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ServisFirst Bancshares shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.036% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ServisFirst Bancshares shares, roughly 36 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 ServisFirst Bancshares.

Dividend payout ratio: 23.16% of net profits
Recently ServisFirst Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 23.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ServisFirst Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 1.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ServisFirst Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.725 per share.
While ServisFirst Bancshares's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ServisFirst Bancshares is investing more in its future growth.
ServisFirst Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 8 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
ServisFirst Bancshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 December 2016. 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 ServisFirst Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ServisFirst Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted ServisFirst Bancshares's share price.
Over the last 12 months, ServisFirst Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.2971 up to $51.5. 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 ServisFirst Bancshares's is 1.1868. This would suggest that ServisFirst Bancshares's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
