Valuing Elbit Systems stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Elbit Systems's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Elbit Systems's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Elbit Systems shares trade at around 26x 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).
Elbit Systems's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.21. 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 Elbit Systems's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Elbit Systems's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$497.3 million.

There are currently 36,688 Elbit Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Elbit Systems's "short interest". This figure is 15.3% down from 43,334 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Elbit Systems shares can be evaluated.
Elbit Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Elbit Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Elbit Systems shares traded daily (recently around 31902.608695652). Elbit Systems's SIR currently stands at 1.15. In other words for every 100,000 Elbit Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1150 shares are currently held short.
However Elbit Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Elbit Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Elbit Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Elbit Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Elbit Systems shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Elbit Systems shares, roughly 2 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 Elbit Systems.

Dividend payout ratio: 33.4% of net profits
Recently Elbit Systems has paid out, on average, around 33.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Elbit Systems shareholders could enjoy a 1.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Elbit Systems's case, that would currently equate to about $1.76 per share.
While Elbit Systems's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Elbit Systems may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Elbit Systems's most recent dividend payout was on 4 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Elbit Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $108.6067 up to $161.7321. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Elbit Systems's is 0.4531. This would suggest that Elbit Systems's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
