Valuing Curtiss-Wright Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Curtiss-Wright Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Curtiss-Wright 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 20x. In other words, Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares trade at around 20x 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.
Curtiss-Wright Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.71. 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 Curtiss-Wright 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.
Curtiss-Wright Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$476.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Curtiss-Wright Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 694,462 Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Curtiss-Wright Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 28.7% down from 973,915 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Curtiss-Wright Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 288158.50622407). Curtiss-Wright Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.41. In other words for every 100,000 Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2410 shares are currently held short.
However Curtiss-Wright Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Curtiss-Wright Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0191% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares, roughly 19 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 Curtiss-Wright Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 10.27% of net profits
Recently Curtiss-Wright Corporation has paid out, on average, around 10.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.6% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Curtiss-Wright Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.6% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Curtiss-Wright Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
While Curtiss-Wright Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Curtiss-Wright Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Curtiss-Wright Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 3 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Curtiss-Wright Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 April 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Curtiss-Wright Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Curtiss-Wright Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Curtiss-Wright Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $70.0606 up to $148.839. 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 Curtiss-Wright Corporation's is 1.5318. This would suggest that Curtiss-Wright 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).
