Is First Busey Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

First Busey Corporation's P/E ratio

First Busey 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 13x. In other words, First Busey Corporation shares trade at around 13x 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 Busey Corporation's PEG ratio

First Busey Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.05. 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 Busey Corporation'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 Busey Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 37.4% of net profits

Recently First Busey Corporation has paid out, on average, around 37.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Busey Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Busey Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.91 per share.

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

First Busey Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 27 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have First Busey Corporation's shares ever split?

First Busey Corporation's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 7 September 2015. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your First Busey Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Busey Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted First Busey Corporation's share price.

First Busey Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Busey Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.8578 up to $29.4936. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BUSE.US volatility(beta: 0.99)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 Busey Corporation's is 0.9894. This would suggest that First Busey Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
