Valuing Dover Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Dover Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Dover 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 25x. In other words, Dover Corporation 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.
Dover Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0815. 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 Dover 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.
Dover Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Dover Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.5 million Dover Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Dover Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.2% down from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dover Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Dover Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dover Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dover Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 768000). Dover Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.99. In other words for every 100,000 Dover Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1990 shares are currently held short.
However Dover Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dover Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dover Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dover Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dover Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0122% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dover Corporation shares, roughly 12 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 Dover Corporation.

Environmental score: 9.29/100

Dividend payout ratio: 34.72% of net profits
Recently Dover Corporation has paid out, on average, around 34.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dover Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dover Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.98 per share.
While Dover Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Dover Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Dover Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Dover Corporation's shares were split on a 1238:1000 basis on 9 May 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1238 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dover Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 19.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dover Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Dover Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Dover Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $62.95 up to $120.26. 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 Dover Corporation's is 1.3629. This would suggest that Dover 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).
