Valuing Cactus stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cactus's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cactus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Cactus shares trade at around 16x 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.
Cactus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$176.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Cactus's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 545,068 Cactus shares held short by investors – that's known as Cactus's "short interest". This figure is 35.7% down from 847,764 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cactus shares can be evaluated.
Cactus's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cactus shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cactus shares traded daily (recently around 392135.25179856). Cactus's SIR currently stands at 1.39. In other words for every 100,000 Cactus shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1390 shares are currently held short.
However Cactus's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cactus shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cactus shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cactus's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cactus shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0115% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cactus shares, roughly 12 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 Cactus.

Dividend payout ratio: 26.47% of net profits
Recently Cactus has paid out, on average, around 26.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cactus shareholders could enjoy a 1.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cactus's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.
While Cactus's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Cactus may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Cactus's most recent dividend payout was on 17 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Cactus's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.75 up to $35.28. 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 Cactus's is 2.351. This would suggest that Cactus's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
