FBMS Price Forecast Based on Dividend Discount Model

Current PriceDDM Fair Value Target: Forecasted Gain:
$35.99$14.21 -61.88%

A technique commonly used by dividend investors to value dividend-issuing stocks is the Dividend Discount Model (DDM), which seeks to determine a fair share price based on the dividend provided by the company relative to a number of other company-specific factors. In the case of FBMS, the DDM model, as implemented by StockNews, implies a negative return of 61.88% relative to its current price. To help understand and contextualize the model's evaluation of FBMS, investors may wish to consider are:

  • Compared to other dividend issuers in the small-sized market cap category, FBMS's beta -- a measure of volatility relative to the market at large -- is lower than just 16.45% of them.
  • FBMS's market cap of approximately $801 million makes it a small-sized market cap company; out of dividend issuers in this group, the investment opportunity based on the difference between its current share price and its forecasted DDM value is greater than just 19.78% of them.
  • Based on dividend growth rate, First Bancshares Inc has been increasing its dividends at a faster rate than 98.15% of US-listed dividend-issuing stocks we observed.
