Valuing Carters stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Carters's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Carters's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Carters shares trade at around 13x 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.
Carters's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.81. 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 Carters's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Carters's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $580.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Carters's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.0 million Carters shares held short by investors – that's known as Carters's "short interest". This figure is 6.7% up from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Carters shares can be evaluated.
Carters's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Carters shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Carters shares traded daily (recently around 499426.48514851). Carters's SIR currently stands at 4.04. In other words for every 100,000 Carters shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4040 shares are currently held short.
However Carters's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Carters shares, or, against the total number of tradable Carters shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Carters's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Carters shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0603% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Carters shares, roughly 60 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 Carters.

Dividend payout ratio: 9.91% of net profits
Recently Carters has paid out, on average, around 9.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Carters shareholders could enjoy a 1.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Carters's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
While Carters's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Carters is investing more in its future growth.
Carters's most recent dividend payout was on 16 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Carters's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 June 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 Carters shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Carters shares which in turn could have impacted Carters's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Carters's shares have ranged in value from as little as $78.5447 up to $116.0258. 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 Carters's is 1.4063. This would suggest that Carters's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
