Valuing Cable One stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cable One's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cable One's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 45x. In other words, Cable One shares trade at around 45x 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.
Cable One's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.11. 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 Cable One's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Cable One's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$598.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Cable One's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 117,491 Cable One shares held short by investors – that's known as Cable One's "short interest". This figure is 14.8% up from 102,360 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cable One shares can be evaluated.
Cable One's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cable One shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cable One shares traded daily (recently around 38648.355263158). Cable One's SIR currently stands at 3.04. In other words for every 100,000 Cable One shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3040 shares are currently held short.
However Cable One's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cable One shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cable One shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cable One's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cable One shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0286% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cable One shares, roughly 29 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 Cable One.

Dividend payout ratio: 22.74% of net profits
Recently Cable One has paid out, on average, around 22.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cable One shareholders could enjoy a 0.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cable One's case, that would currently equate to about $10 per share.
While Cable One's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Cable One is investing more in its future growth.
Cable One's most recent dividend payout was on 4 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Cable One's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1031.39 up to $2044.41. 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 Cable One's is 0.4065. This would suggest that Cable One's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
