Valuing Canadian Pacific Railway stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Canadian Pacific Railway's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Canadian Pacific Railway's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Canadian Pacific Railway shares trade at around 18x 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.
Canadian Pacific Railway's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.36. 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 Canadian Pacific Railway's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Canadian Pacific Railway's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Canadian Pacific Railway's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 43.2 million Canadian Pacific Railway shares held short by investors – that's known as Canadian Pacific Railway's "short interest". This figure is 138.1% up from 18.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Canadian Pacific Railway shares can be evaluated.
Canadian Pacific Railway's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Canadian Pacific Railway shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Canadian Pacific Railway shares traded daily (recently around 6.7 million). Canadian Pacific Railway's SIR currently stands at 6.49. In other words for every 100,000 Canadian Pacific Railway shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6490 shares are currently held short.
However Canadian Pacific Railway's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Canadian Pacific Railway shares, or, against the total number of tradable Canadian Pacific Railway shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Canadian Pacific Railway's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Canadian Pacific Railway shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0707% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Canadian Pacific Railway shares, roughly 71 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Canadian Pacific Railway.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Canadian Pacific Railway is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 11.41/100
Canadian Pacific Railway's environmental score of 11.41 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Canadian Pacific Railway is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 12.93/100

Dividend payout ratio: 59.94% of net profits
Recently Canadian Pacific Railway has paid out, on average, around 59.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Canadian Pacific Railway shareholders could enjoy a 0.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Canadian Pacific Railway's case, that would currently equate to about $0.76 per share.
Canadian Pacific Railway's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Canadian Pacific Railway's most recent dividend payout was on 24 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Canadian Pacific Railway's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 13 May 2021. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Canadian Pacific Railway shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Canadian Pacific Railway shares which in turn could have impacted Canadian Pacific Railway's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Canadian Pacific Railway's shares have ranged in value from as little as $57.3208 up to $82.7109. 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 Canadian Pacific Railway's is 0.6643. This would suggest that Canadian Pacific Railway's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
