Valuing Deluxe Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Deluxe Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Deluxe 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 22x. In other words, Deluxe Corporation shares trade at around 22x 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.
Deluxe Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.84. 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 Deluxe 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.
Deluxe Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$338.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Deluxe Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.6 million Deluxe Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Deluxe Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% down from 2.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Deluxe Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Deluxe Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Deluxe Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Deluxe Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 239771.75712971). Deluxe Corporation's SIR currently stands at 10.87. In other words for every 100,000 Deluxe Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10870 shares are currently held short.
However Deluxe Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Deluxe Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Deluxe Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Deluxe Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Deluxe Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0713% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Deluxe Corporation shares, roughly 71 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Deluxe Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 20.41% of net profits
Recently Deluxe Corporation has paid out, on average, around 20.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Deluxe Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 4.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Deluxe Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.
While Deluxe Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Deluxe Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Deluxe Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 8 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Deluxe Corporation's shares were split on a 10000:7995 basis on 2 January 2001. So if you had owned 7995 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Deluxe Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Deluxe Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Deluxe Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Deluxe Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.9 up to $54.145. 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 Deluxe Corporation's is 1.5025. This would suggest that Deluxe 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).
