Valuing Capitol Federal Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Capitol Federal Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Capitol Federal Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Capitol Federal Financial shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Capitol Federal Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.66. 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 Capitol Federal Financial'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 6.0 million Capitol Federal Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Capitol Federal Financial's "short interest". This figure is 4.4% up from 5.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Capitol Federal Financial shares can be evaluated.
Capitol Federal Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Capitol Federal Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Capitol Federal Financial shares traded daily (recently around 659140.19715225). Capitol Federal Financial's SIR currently stands at 9.13. In other words for every 100,000 Capitol Federal Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9130 shares are currently held short.
However Capitol Federal Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Capitol Federal Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Capitol Federal Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Capitol Federal Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Capitol Federal Financial shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0732% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Capitol Federal Financial shares, roughly 73 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 Capitol Federal Financial.

Dividend payout ratio: 89.53% of net profits
Recently Capitol Federal Financial has paid out, on average, around 89.53% of net profits as dividends.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Capitol Federal Financial shareholders could enjoy a 2.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Capitol Federal Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.
Capitol Federal Financial'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.
