Is Bank First Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Bank First Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bank First Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Bank First Corporation's P/E ratio
Bank First Corporation'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, Bank First Corporation 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.

Bank First Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 19.16% of net profits
Recently Bank First Corporation has paid out, on average, around 19.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bank First Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bank First Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 per share.
While Bank First Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Bank First Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Bank First Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 4 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Bank First Corporation's shares ever split?
Bank First Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 October 2002. 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 Bank First Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bank First Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Bank First Corporation's share price.
Bank First Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Bank First Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $64.9453 up to $75.7466. 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 Bank First Corporation's is 0.3269. This would suggest that Bank First Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
