Valuing AMERCO stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AMERCO's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
AMERCO's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, AMERCO shares trade at around 16x 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.
AMERCO's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a AMERCO's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 154,804 AMERCO shares held short by investors – that's known as AMERCO's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 155,845 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AMERCO shares can be evaluated.
AMERCO's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AMERCO shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AMERCO shares traded daily (recently around 31210.483870968). AMERCO's SIR currently stands at 4.96. In other words for every 100,000 AMERCO shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4960 shares are currently held short.
However AMERCO's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AMERCO shares, or, against the total number of tradable AMERCO shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AMERCO's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AMERCO shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0152% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AMERCO shares, roughly 15 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 AMERCO.

Dividend payout ratio: 3.87% of net profits
Recently AMERCO has paid out, on average, around 3.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), AMERCO shareholders could enjoy a 0.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In AMERCO's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.
While AMERCO's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that AMERCO is investing more in its future growth.
AMERCO's most recent dividend payout was on 21 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, AMERCO's shares have ranged in value from as little as $222.0445 up to $422.55. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while AMERCO's is 0.7627. This would suggest that AMERCO's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
