Is Crane under- or over-valued?
Valuing Crane stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Crane's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Crane's P/E ratio
Crane's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Crane shares trade at around 24x 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.
Crane's PEG ratio
Crane's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8252. 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 Crane's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Crane's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $491.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Crane's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

|Operating margin TTM||12.18%|

Shorting Crane shares
There are currently 571,184 Crane shares held short by investors – that's known as Crane's "short interest". This figure is 71.1% up from 333,804 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Crane shares can be evaluated.
Crane's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Crane's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Crane shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Crane shares traded daily (recently around 303821.27659574). Crane's SIR currently stands at 1.88. In other words for every 100,000 Crane shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1880 shares are currently held short.
However Crane's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Crane shares, or, against the total number of tradable Crane shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Crane's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Crane shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0116% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Crane shares, roughly 12 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 Crane.

Crane share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 39.54% of net profits
Recently Crane has paid out, on average, around 39.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Crane shareholders could enjoy a 1.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Crane's case, that would currently equate to about $1.72 per share.
While Crane's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Crane may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Crane's most recent dividend payout was on 8 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Crane's shares ever split?
Crane's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 14 September 1998. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Crane shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Crane shares which in turn could have impacted Crane's share price.
Crane share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Crane's shares have ranged in value from as little as $47.4534 up to $99.4825. 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 Crane's is 1.6937. This would suggest that Crane's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
