Is First Bancorp stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing First Bancorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Bancorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

First Bancorp's P/E ratio

First 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 9x. In other words, First Bancorp shares trade at around 9x 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.

First Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 38.37% of net profits

Recently First Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 38.37% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.28% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 4.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.

While First Bancorp's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that First Bancorp may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

First Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 21 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have First Bancorp's shares ever split?

First Bancorp's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 1 June 2004. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your First Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted First Bancorp's share price.

First Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.1433 up to $36.403. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FNLC.US volatility(beta: 0.53)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while First Bancorp's is 0.5345. This would suggest that First Bancorp's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
