Valuing Cubic Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cubic Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cubic 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 187x. In other words, Cubic Corporation shares trade at around 187x 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.
Cubic Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.4078. 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 Cubic Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Cubic Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$133.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Cubic Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.0 million Cubic Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Cubic Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% down from 4.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cubic Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Cubic Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cubic Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cubic Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 707686.83274021). Cubic Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.62. In other words for every 100,000 Cubic Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5620 shares are currently held short.
However Cubic Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cubic Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cubic Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cubic Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cubic Corporation shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1775% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cubic Corporation shares, roughly 178 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 Cubic Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 11.44% of net profits
Recently Cubic Corporation has paid out, on average, around 11.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cubic Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cubic Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.27 per share.
While Cubic Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Cubic Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Cubic Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Cubic Corporation's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 1 May 2002. 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 Cubic Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cubic Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Cubic Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Cubic Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.86 up to $75.2. 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 Cubic Corporation's is 0.989. This would suggest that Cubic Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
