Valuing Donaldson Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Donaldson Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Donaldson Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Donaldson Company shares trade at around 25x 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.
Donaldson Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8658. 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 Donaldson Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Donaldson Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$430 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Donaldson Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 830,640 Donaldson Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Donaldson Company's "short interest". This figure is 23.8% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Donaldson Company shares can be evaluated.
Donaldson Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Donaldson Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Donaldson Company shares traded daily (recently around 512740.74074074). Donaldson Company's SIR currently stands at 1.62. In other words for every 100,000 Donaldson Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1620 shares are currently held short.
However Donaldson Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Donaldson Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Donaldson Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Donaldson Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Donaldson Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0073% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Donaldson Company shares, roughly 7 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 Donaldson Company.

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: 33.04
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Donaldson Company's overall score of 33.04 (as at 10/01/2020) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 67th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Donaldson Company 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: 10.84/100
Donaldson Company's environmental score of 10.84 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Donaldson Company is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 12.69/100
Donaldson Company's social score of 12.69 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Donaldson Company is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 32.06% of net profits
Recently Donaldson Company has paid out, on average, around 32.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Donaldson Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Donaldson Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 per share.
While Donaldson Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Donaldson Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Donaldson Company's most recent dividend payout was on 31 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Donaldson Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 March 2012. 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 Donaldson Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Donaldson Company shares which in turn could have impacted Donaldson Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Donaldson Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.08 up to $58.32. 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 Donaldson Company's is 1.3784. This would suggest that Donaldson Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
