Is it a good time to buy Fauquier Bankshares stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Fauquier Bankshares under- or over-valued?

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

Fauquier Bankshares's P/E ratio

Fauquier Bankshares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Fauquier Bankshares shares trade at around 14x 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.

Fauquier Bankshares share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 44.56% of net profits

Recently Fauquier Bankshares has paid out, on average, around 44.56% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fauquier Bankshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fauquier Bankshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.

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

Fauquier Bankshares's most recent dividend payout was on 25 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Fauquier Bankshares's shares ever split?

Fauquier Bankshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 May 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 Fauquier Bankshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fauquier Bankshares shares which in turn could have impacted Fauquier Bankshares's share price.

Fauquier Bankshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Fauquier Bankshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.3375 up to $21.85. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FBSS.US volatility(beta: 0.8)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
