Valuing Covanta Holding Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Covanta Holding Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Covanta Holding 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 108x. In other words, Covanta Holding Corporation shares trade at around 108x recent earnings.
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.

Dividend payout ratio: 4.28% of net profits
Recently Covanta Holding Corporation has paid out, on average, around 4.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Covanta Holding Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Covanta Holding Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.
While Covanta Holding Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Covanta Holding Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Covanta Holding Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Covanta Holding Corporation's shares were split on a 1573:1136 basis on 22 June 2005. So if you had owned 1136 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1573 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Covanta Holding Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 27.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Covanta Holding Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Covanta Holding Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Covanta Holding Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.0402 up to $20.26. 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 Covanta Holding Corporation's is 1.3662. This would suggest that Covanta Holding 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).
