Is FS Bancorp under- or over-valued?

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

FS Bancorp's P/E ratio

FS Bancorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, FS Bancorp shares trade at around 7x 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.

FS Bancorp share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 10.57% of net profits

Recently FS Bancorp has paid out, on average, around 10.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FS Bancorp shareholders could enjoy a 1.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FS Bancorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.515 per share.

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

FS Bancorp's most recent dividend payout was on 23 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have FS Bancorp's shares ever split?

FS Bancorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 July 2021. 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 FS Bancorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for FS Bancorp shares which in turn could have impacted FS Bancorp's share price.

FS Bancorp share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FS Bancorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.0149 up to $36.6217. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FSBW.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 FS Bancorp's is 1.2103. This would suggest that FS Bancorp's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
