Valuing Atrion Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Atrion Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Atrion Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, Atrion Corporation shares trade at around 35x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 52,707 Atrion Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Atrion Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% up from 51,935 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Atrion Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Atrion Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Atrion Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Atrion Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 7949.7737556561). Atrion Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.63. In other words for every 100,000 Atrion Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6630 shares are currently held short.
However Atrion Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Atrion Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Atrion Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Atrion Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Atrion Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0417% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Atrion Corporation shares, roughly 42 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Atrion Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 38% of net profits
Recently Atrion Corporation has paid out, on average, around 38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Atrion Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Atrion Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $7 per share.
While Atrion Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Atrion Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Atrion Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Atrion Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 3 December 1996. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Atrion Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Atrion Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Atrion Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Atrion Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $565.3308 up to $748.9121. 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 Atrion Corporation's is 0.1402. This would suggest that Atrion Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
