Valuing Clearwater Paper Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Clearwater Paper Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Clearwater Paper 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 11x. In other words, Clearwater Paper Corporation shares trade at around 11x 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.
Clearwater Paper Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.05. 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 Clearwater Paper 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.
Clearwater Paper Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$239.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Clearwater Paper Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 686,058 Clearwater Paper Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Clearwater Paper Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.7% up from 625,612 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Clearwater Paper Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Clearwater Paper Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Clearwater Paper Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Clearwater Paper Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 153480.53691275). Clearwater Paper Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.47. In other words for every 100,000 Clearwater Paper Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4470 shares are currently held short.
However Clearwater Paper Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Clearwater Paper Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Clearwater Paper Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Clearwater Paper Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Clearwater Paper Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0506% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Clearwater Paper Corporation shares, roughly 51 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 Clearwater Paper Corporation.

Clearwater Paper Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 August 2011. 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 Clearwater Paper Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Clearwater Paper Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Clearwater Paper Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Clearwater Paper Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.88 up to $42.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Clearwater Paper Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
