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 28x. In other words, Eagle Materials shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.6 million Eagle Materials shares held short by investors – that's known as Eagle Materials's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% down from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Eagle Materials shares can be evaluated.
Eagle Materials's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eagle Materials shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eagle Materials shares traded daily (recently around 371532.63888889). Eagle Materials's SIR currently stands at 4.32. In other words for every 100,000 Eagle Materials shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4320 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"). In this case Eagle Materials's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eagle Materials shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0389% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eagle Materials 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 Eagle Materials.

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: 35.17
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Eagle Materials's overall score of 35.17 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 77th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Eagle Materials 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: 20.84/100
Eagle Materials's environmental score of 20.84 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Eagle Materials is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 6.54/100
Eagle Materials's social score of 6.54 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Eagle Materials is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Dividend payout ratio: 1.57% of net profits
Recently Eagle Materials has paid out, on average, around 1.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.61% 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 0.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eagle Materials's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 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 8 May 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Eagle Materials's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 27 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.
Over the last 12 months, Eagle Materials's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.7594 up to $101. 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 1.3087. This would suggest that Eagle Materials's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
