Valuing EnerSys stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EnerSys's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
EnerSys's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, EnerSys shares trade at around 25x 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.
EnerSys's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7715. 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 EnerSys's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
EnerSys's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$325.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a EnerSys's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 976,280 EnerSys shares held short by investors – that's known as EnerSys's "short interest". This figure is 6.7% down from 1.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting EnerSys shares can be evaluated.
EnerSys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EnerSys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EnerSys shares traded daily (recently around 214567.03296703). EnerSys's SIR currently stands at 4.55. In other words for every 100,000 EnerSys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4550 shares are currently held short.
However EnerSys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EnerSys shares, or, against the total number of tradable EnerSys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EnerSys's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EnerSys shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0261% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EnerSys shares, roughly 26 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 EnerSys.

Dividend payout ratio: 16.28% of net profits
Recently EnerSys has paid out, on average, around 16.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EnerSys shareholders could enjoy a 0.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EnerSys's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.
While EnerSys's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that EnerSys is investing more in its future growth.
EnerSys's most recent dividend payout was on 25 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
EnerSys's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 20 October 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your EnerSys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for EnerSys shares which in turn could have impacted EnerSys's share price.
Over the last 12 months, EnerSys's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.2083 up to $80.22. 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 EnerSys's is 1.5753. This would suggest that EnerSys's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
