Valuing Columbia Sportswear Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Columbia Sportswear Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.
Columbia Sportswear Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.66. 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 Columbia Sportswear Company'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 1.5 million Columbia Sportswear Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Columbia Sportswear Company's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% up from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Columbia Sportswear Company shares can be evaluated.
Columbia Sportswear Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Columbia Sportswear Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Columbia Sportswear Company shares traded daily (recently around 349538.55140187). Columbia Sportswear Company's SIR currently stands at 4.28. In other words for every 100,000 Columbia Sportswear Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4280 shares are currently held short.
However Columbia Sportswear Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Columbia Sportswear Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Columbia Sportswear Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Columbia Sportswear Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Columbia Sportswear Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0521% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Columbia Sportswear Company shares, roughly 52 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 Columbia Sportswear Company.

Dividend payout ratio: 18.38% of net profits
Recently Columbia Sportswear Company has paid out, on average, around 18.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Columbia Sportswear Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Columbia Sportswear Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.04 per share.
While Columbia Sportswear Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Columbia Sportswear Company is investing more in its future growth.

Columbia Sportswear Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 September 2014. 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 Columbia Sportswear Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Columbia Sportswear Company shares which in turn could have impacted Columbia Sportswear Company's share price.
