Valuing Copa Holdings S-A stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Copa Holdings S-A's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Copa Holdings S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Copa Holdings S-A shares trade at around 9x 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.
Copa Holdings S-A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.16. 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 Copa Holdings S-A's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Copa Holdings S-A's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$156.5 million.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.3 million Copa Holdings S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Copa Holdings S-A's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% up from 4.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Copa Holdings S-A shares can be evaluated.
Copa Holdings S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Copa Holdings S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Copa Holdings S-A shares traded daily (recently around 528930.85501859). Copa Holdings S-A's SIR currently stands at 8.07. In other words for every 100,000 Copa Holdings S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8070 shares are currently held short.
However Copa Holdings S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Copa Holdings S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Copa Holdings S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Copa Holdings S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Copa Holdings S-A shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1364% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Copa Holdings S-A shares, roughly 136 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 Copa Holdings S-A.

Dividend payout ratio: 39.51% of net profits
Recently Copa Holdings S-A has paid out, on average, around 39.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Copa Holdings S-A shareholders could enjoy a 7.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Copa Holdings S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $3.2 per share.
While Copa Holdings S-A's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Copa Holdings S-A may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Copa Holdings S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 13 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Copa Holdings S-A's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 16 May 2013. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Copa Holdings S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Copa Holdings S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Copa Holdings S-A's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Copa Holdings S-A's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24 up to $114. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

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