Is Eagle Materials under- or over-valued?
Valuing Eagle Materials stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Eagle Materials's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Eagle Materials's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Eagle Materials shares trade at around 17x 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.
Eagle Materials's PEG ratio
Eagle Materials's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.51. 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 Eagle Materials's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Eagle Materials's SIR currently stands at 2.06. In other words for every 100,000 Eagle Materials shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2060 shares are currently held short.
However Eagle Materials's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eagle Materials shares, or, against the total number of tradable Eagle Materials shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float").

Eagle Materials share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 3.53% of net profits
Recently Eagle Materials has paid out, on average, around 3.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eagle Materials shareholders could enjoy a 0.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eagle Materials's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.
While Eagle Materials's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Eagle Materials is investing more in its future growth.
Eagle Materials's most recent dividend payout was on 15 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Eagle Materials's shares ever split?
Eagle Materials's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 26 February 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Eagle Materials shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eagle Materials shares which in turn could have impacted Eagle Materials's share price.
Eagle Materials share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Eagle Materials's shares have ranged in value from as little as $77.8454 up to $153.4447. 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 Eagle Materials's is 1.2339. This would suggest that Eagle Materials's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
