Valuing Barnes Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Barnes Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Barnes 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 26x. In other words, Barnes Group shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Barnes Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.365. 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 Barnes 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.
Barnes Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$265.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Barnes Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 623,444 Barnes Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Barnes Group's "short interest". This figure is 9.5% down from 688,559 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Barnes Group shares can be evaluated.
Barnes Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Barnes Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Barnes Group shares traded daily (recently around 165809.57446809). Barnes Group's SIR currently stands at 3.76. In other words for every 100,000 Barnes Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3760 shares are currently held short.
However Barnes Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Barnes Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Barnes Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Barnes Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Barnes Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0158% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Barnes Group shares, roughly 16 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 Barnes Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 29.91% of net profits
Recently Barnes Group has paid out, on average, around 29.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Barnes Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Barnes Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.
While Barnes Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Barnes Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Barnes Group's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Barnes Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 June 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Barnes Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Barnes Group shares which in turn could have impacted Barnes Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Barnes Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.8596 up to $67.5931. 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 Barnes Group's is 1.159. This would suggest that Barnes Group'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).
