Valuing Avient Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Avient Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Avient 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 53x. In other words, Avient Corporation shares trade at around 53x 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.
Avient Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1207. 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 Avient Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Avient Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$382.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Avient Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.4 million Avient Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Avient Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 6.3% down from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Avient Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Avient Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avient Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avient Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 751262.56684492). Avient Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.87. In other words for every 100,000 Avient Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1870 shares are currently held short.
However Avient Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avient Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avient Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avient Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avient Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0178% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avient Corporation shares, roughly 18 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 Avient Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 45.6% of net profits
Recently Avient Corporation 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 1.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Avient Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Avient Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.85 per share.
While Avient Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Avient Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Avient Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Avient Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.3642 up to $51.94. 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 Avient Corporation's is 1.6514. This would suggest that Avient Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
