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

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 9.4 million Alcoa Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Alcoa Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 15.4% down from 11.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Alcoa Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Alcoa Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alcoa Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alcoa Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 7.9 million). Alcoa Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.18. In other words for every 100,000 Alcoa Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1180 shares are currently held short.
However Alcoa Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Alcoa Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Alcoa Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Alcoa Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Alcoa Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0505% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Alcoa Corporation shares, roughly 51 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 Alcoa Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 2.92% of net profits
Recently Alcoa Corporation has paid out, on average, around 2.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Alcoa Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Alcoa Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.
While Alcoa Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Alcoa Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Alcoa Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 24 November 2016.
Alcoa Corporation's shares were split on a 1000:801 basis on 31 October 2016. So if you had owned 801 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Alcoa Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 19.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alcoa Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Alcoa Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Alcoa Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.15 up to $52.0797. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
