Valuing Encore Wire Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Encore Wire Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Encore Wire 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 8x. In other words, Encore Wire Corporation shares trade at around 8x 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.
Encore Wire Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.09. 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 Encore Wire 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.
Encore Wire Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $369 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Encore Wire Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 531,575 Encore Wire Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Encore Wire Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5% up from 506,029 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Encore Wire Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Encore Wire Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Encore Wire Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Encore Wire Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 97536.697247706). Encore Wire Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.45. In other words for every 100,000 Encore Wire Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5450 shares are currently held short.
However Encore Wire Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Encore Wire Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Encore Wire Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Encore Wire Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Encore Wire Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0264% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Encore Wire Corporation shares, roughly 26 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Encore Wire Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 0.62% of net profits
Recently Encore Wire Corporation has paid out, on average, around 0.62% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Encore Wire Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Encore Wire Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.
While Encore Wire Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Encore Wire Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Encore Wire Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Encore Wire Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 August 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 Encore Wire Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Encore Wire Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Encore Wire Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Encore Wire Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $45.5946 up to $105.17. 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 Encore Wire Corporation's is 1.0444. This would suggest that Encore Wire Corporation'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).
