Valuing American Airlines Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of American Airlines Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
American Airlines Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, American Airlines Group shares trade at around 3x 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.
American Airlines Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6272. 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 American Airlines Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
American Airlines Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$4.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a American Airlines Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 143.7 million American Airlines Group shares held short by investors – that's known as American Airlines Group's "short interest". This figure is 11.2% up from 129.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting American Airlines Group shares can be evaluated.
American Airlines Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of American Airlines Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of American Airlines Group shares traded daily (recently around 66.8 million). American Airlines Group's SIR currently stands at 2.15. In other words for every 100,000 American Airlines Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2150 shares are currently held short.
However American Airlines Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of American Airlines Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable American Airlines Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case American Airlines Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.3% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 American Airlines Group shares in existence, roughly 300 shares are currently held short) or 0.433% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable American Airlines Group shares, roughly 433 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 American Airlines Group.

Environmental score: 12.43/100

Dividend payout ratio: 10.55% of net profits
Recently American Airlines Group has paid out, on average, around 10.55% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), American Airlines Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In American Airlines Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
While American Airlines Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that American Airlines Group is investing more in its future growth.
American Airlines Group's most recent dividend payout was on 19 February 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
American Airlines Group's shares were split on 9 December 2013. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your American Airlines Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new INF% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for American Airlines Group shares which in turn could have impacted American Airlines Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, American Airlines Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.76 up to $31.67. 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 American Airlines Group's is 1.7542. This would suggest that American Airlines Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
