Valuing Cameco Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cameco Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cameco 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 133x. In other words, Cameco Corporation shares trade at around 133x 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.
Cameco Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.33. 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 Cameco 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 12.2 million Cameco Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Cameco Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 17.6% down from 14.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cameco Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Cameco Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cameco Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cameco Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 4.2 million). Cameco Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.94. In other words for every 100,000 Cameco Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2940 shares are currently held short.
However Cameco Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cameco Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cameco Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cameco Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cameco Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cameco Corporation shares, roughly 0 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 Cameco Corporation.

We're not expecting Cameco Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Cameco Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 23 February 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 Cameco Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cameco Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Cameco Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Cameco Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.2688 up to $14.42. 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 Cameco Corporation's is 0.5919. This would suggest that Cameco Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
