Valuing Atlas stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Atlas's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Atlas's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Atlas shares trade at around 13x 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.
Atlas's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$793.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Atlas's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.1 million Atlas shares held short by investors – that's known as Atlas's "short interest". This figure is 19.8% down from 2.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Atlas shares can be evaluated.
Atlas's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Atlas shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Atlas shares traded daily (recently around 589699.16201117). Atlas's SIR currently stands at 3.58. In other words for every 100,000 Atlas shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3580 shares are currently held short.
However Atlas's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Atlas shares, or, against the total number of tradable Atlas shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Atlas's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Atlas shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0257% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Atlas shares, roughly 26 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 Atlas.

Dividend payout ratio: 45.6% of net profits
Recently Atlas has paid out, on average, around 45.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Atlas shareholders could enjoy a 4.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Atlas's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
While Atlas's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Atlas may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Atlas's most recent dividend payout was on 30 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Atlas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.1374 up to $13.7573. 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 Atlas's is 1.0945. This would suggest that Atlas's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
