Valuing BWX Technologies stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BWX Technologies's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BWX Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, BWX Technologies shares trade at around 23x 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.
BWX Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.31. 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 BWX Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
BWX Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$420.8 million.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 665,792 BWX Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as BWX Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 38.2% up from 481,790 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BWX Technologies shares can be evaluated.
BWX Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BWX Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BWX Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 610818.34862385). BWX Technologies's SIR currently stands at 1.09. In other words for every 100,000 BWX Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1090 shares are currently held short.
However BWX Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BWX Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable BWX Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BWX Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BWX Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0089% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BWX Technologies shares, roughly 9 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 BWX Technologies.

Dividend payout ratio: 25.74% of net profits
Recently BWX Technologies has paid out, on average, around 25.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BWX Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 1.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BWX Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.76 per share.
While BWX Technologies's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that BWX Technologies may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
BWX Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 25 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
BWX Technologies's shares were split on a 1398:1000 basis on 30 June 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1398 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BWX Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 28.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BWX Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted BWX Technologies's share price.
Over the last 12 months, BWX Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $48.9936 up to $68.67. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while BWX Technologies's is 1.0226. This would suggest that BWX Technologies'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).
