Is First Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

First Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

First Financial 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 10x. In other words, First Financial Corporation shares trade at around 10x 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 Financial Corporation share dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 25.3% of net profits

Recently First Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 25.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.06 per share.

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

First Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 13 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have First Financial Corporation's shares ever split?

First Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 October 2003. 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 First Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted First Financial Corporation's share price.

First Financial Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.0437 up to $45.97. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

THFF.US volatility(beta: 0.75)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 Financial Corporation's is 0.7511. This would suggest that First Financial Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
