Valuing Ennis stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ennis's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ennis's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Ennis shares trade at around 14x 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.
Ennis's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.36. 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 Ennis's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Ennis's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$56.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ennis's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 699,551 Ennis shares held short by investors – that's known as Ennis's "short interest". This figure is 17% down from 842,597 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ennis shares can be evaluated.
Ennis's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ennis shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ennis shares traded daily (recently around 116981.77257525). Ennis's SIR currently stands at 5.98. In other words for every 100,000 Ennis shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5980 shares are currently held short.
However Ennis's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ennis shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ennis shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ennis's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ennis shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0277% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ennis shares, roughly 28 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 Ennis.

Dividend payout ratio: 29.26% of net profits
Recently Ennis has paid out, on average, around 29.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ennis shareholders could enjoy a 5.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ennis's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.
While Ennis's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Ennis may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Ennis's most recent dividend payout was on 6 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Ennis's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 August 1991. 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 Ennis shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ennis shares which in turn could have impacted Ennis's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Ennis's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.98 up to $22.21. 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 Ennis's is 0.4672. This would suggest that Ennis's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
