Is First National Financial Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

First National Financial Corporation's P/E ratio

First National 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 11x. In other words, First National Financial Corporation stocks trade at around 11x recent earnings.

First National Financial Corporation's PEG ratio

First National Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.58. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into First National Financial Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

How to short and sell First National Financial Corporation stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "FN.TO"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 497,474 First National Financial Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as First National Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% up from 490,484 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting First National Financial Corporation stocks can be evaluated.

First National Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

First National Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of First National Financial Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of First National Financial Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 30956.68948351). First National Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 16.07. In other words for every 100,000 First National Financial Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 16070 stocks are currently held short.

However First National Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of First National Financial Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable First National Financial Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case First National Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 First National Financial Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0291% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable First National Financial Corporation stocks, roughly 29 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the stock price and a discouraging interest in betting against First National Financial Corporation.

First National Financial Corporation stock dividends

19%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.31% of net profits

Recently First National Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 19.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First National Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First National Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about C$2.092 per share.

While First National Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that First National Financial Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

First National Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

First National Financial Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First National Financial Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as C$29.6267 up to C$52.5928. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FN.TO volatility(beta: 1.27)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while First National Financial Corporation's is 1.2669. This would suggest that First National Financial Corporation's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
