Valuing Crown stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Crown's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Crown's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Crown shares trade at around 21x 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.
Crown's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.3682. 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 Crown's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Crown's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Crown's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.7 million Crown shares held short by investors – that's known as Crown's "short interest". This figure is 61.2% up from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Crown shares can be evaluated.
Crown's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Crown shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Crown shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Crown's SIR currently stands at 2.65. In other words for every 100,000 Crown shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2650 shares are currently held short.
However Crown's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Crown shares, or, against the total number of tradable Crown shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Crown's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Crown shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.021% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Crown shares, roughly 21 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 Crown.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Crown.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 14.23
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Crown's overall score of 14.23 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Crown is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 6.78/100
Crown's environmental score of 6.78 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Crown is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 2.16/100
Crown's social score of 2.16 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Crown is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 3.29/100
Crown's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Crown is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 1/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Crown scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that Crown has managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||14.23|
|Total ESG percentile||5.54|
|Environmental score percentile||4|
|Social score percentile||4|
|Governance score percentile||4|
|Level of controversy||1|
Dividend payout ratio: 5.16% of net profits
Recently Crown has paid out, on average, around 5.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Crown shareholders could enjoy a 0.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Crown's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.
While Crown's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Crown is investing more in its future growth.
Crown's most recent dividend payout was on 19 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Crown's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 31 May 1992. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Crown shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Crown shares which in turn could have impacted Crown's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Crown's shares have ranged in value from as little as $55.7356 up to $111.67. 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 Crown's is 1.1445. This would suggest that Crown's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
