Valuing Employers stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Employers's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Employers's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Employers shares trade at around 11x 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.
Employers's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.05. 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 Employers's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Employers's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$118.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Employers's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 492,415 Employers shares held short by investors – that's known as Employers's "short interest". This figure is 4.4% down from 515,169 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Employers shares can be evaluated.
Employers's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Employers shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Employers shares traded daily (recently around 177767.14801444). Employers's SIR currently stands at 2.77. In other words for every 100,000 Employers shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2770 shares are currently held short.
However Employers's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Employers shares, or, against the total number of tradable Employers shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Employers's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Employers shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0242% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Employers shares, roughly 24 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 Employers.

Dividend payout ratio: 46.3% of net profits
Recently Employers has paid out, on average, around 46.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Employers shareholders could enjoy a 3.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Employers's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
While Employers's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Employers may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Employers's most recent dividend payout was on 18 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Employers's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.1407 up to $43.5677. 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 Employers's is -0.0378. This would suggest that Employers's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Employers has bucked the trend.
