Valuing Albany International stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Albany International's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Albany International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Albany International shares trade at around 24x 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.
Albany International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Albany International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Albany International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$248.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Albany International's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 613,314 Albany International shares held short by investors – that's known as Albany International's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% down from 643,159 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Albany International shares can be evaluated.
Albany International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Albany International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Albany International shares traded daily (recently around 168492.85714286). Albany International's SIR currently stands at 3.64. In other words for every 100,000 Albany International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3640 shares are currently held short.
However Albany International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Albany International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Albany International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Albany International's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Albany International shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0277% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Albany International shares, roughly 28 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Albany International.

Dividend payout ratio: 20.26% of net profits
Recently Albany International has paid out, on average, around 20.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Albany International shareholders could enjoy a 1.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Albany International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
While Albany International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Albany International is investing more in its future growth.
Albany International's most recent dividend payout was on 8 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Albany International's shares were split on a 102:100 basis on 8 December 1999. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 102 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Albany International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Albany International shares which in turn could have impacted Albany International's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Albany International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.9965 up to $78.6941. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Albany International's is 1.3979. This would suggest that Albany International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
