Is First Citizens BancShares stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing First Citizens BancShares stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of First Citizens BancShares's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
First Citizens BancShares's P/E ratio
First Citizens BancShares's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, First Citizens BancShares shares trade at around 2x 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.
