Is First US Bancshares stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

First US Bancshares's P/E ratio

First US 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 7x. In other words, First US Bancshares 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.

First US Bancshares share dividends

15%

Dividend payout ratio: 14.91% of net profits

Recently First US Bancshares has paid out, on average, around 14.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), First US Bancshares shareholders could enjoy a 2.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In First US Bancshares's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.

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

First US Bancshares's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have First US Bancshares's shares ever split?

First US Bancshares's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 July 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 US Bancshares shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for First US Bancshares shares which in turn could have impacted First US Bancshares's share price.

First US Bancshares share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, First US Bancshares's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.8319 up to $11.1366. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FUSB.US volatility(beta: 0.92)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
