Is First United Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

First United Corporation's P/E ratio

First United 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 8x. In other words, First United Corporation shares trade at around 8x 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 United Corporation share dividends

23%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.35% of net profits

Recently First United Corporation has paid out, on average, around 23.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First United Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First United Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.

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

First United Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have First United Corporation's shares ever split?

First United Corporation's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 12 March 1996. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your First United Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First United Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted First United Corporation's share price.

First United Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First United Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.0454 up to $20.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FUNC.US volatility(beta: 0.95)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 United Corporation's is 0.9513. This would suggest that First United Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
