Is First of Long Island stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

First of Long Island's P/E ratio

First of Long Island'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 of Long Island 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 of Long Island's PEG ratio

First of Long Island's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.89. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into First of Long Island's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

First of Long Island share dividends

41%

Dividend payout ratio: 40.7% of net profits

Recently First of Long Island has paid out, on average, around 40.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First of Long Island shareholders could enjoy a 4.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First of Long Island's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

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

First of Long Island's most recent dividend payout was on 22 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have First of Long Island's shares ever split?

First of Long Island's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 29 November 2016. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 of Long Island shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First of Long Island shares which in turn could have impacted First of Long Island's share price.

First of Long Island share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First of Long Island's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.3245 up to $22.4788. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FLIC.US volatility(beta: 0.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
