Valuing Domtar Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Domtar Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Domtar 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 100x. In other words, Domtar Corporation shares trade at around 100x 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.
Domtar Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.86. 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 Domtar 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.
Domtar Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$350 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Domtar Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.5 million Domtar Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Domtar Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.9% down from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Domtar Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Domtar Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Domtar Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Domtar Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 803983.68421053). Domtar Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.9. In other words for every 100,000 Domtar Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1900 shares are currently held short.
However Domtar Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Domtar Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Domtar Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Domtar Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Domtar Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0387% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Domtar Corporation shares, roughly 39 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 Domtar Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 112.35% of net profits
Recently Domtar Corporation has paid out, on average, around 112.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Domtar Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 8.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Domtar Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.82 per share.
Domtar Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Domtar Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Domtar Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 June 2014. 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 Domtar Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Domtar Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Domtar Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Domtar Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.0131 up to $39.2079. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Domtar 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).
