Valuing EnPro Industries stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EnPro Industries's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
EnPro Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 97x. In other words, EnPro Industries shares trade at around 97x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
EnPro Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3872. 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 EnPro Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
EnPro Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$160.3 million.

There are currently 236,853 EnPro Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as EnPro Industries's "short interest". This figure is 14.8% down from 277,880 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting EnPro Industries shares can be evaluated.
EnPro Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EnPro Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EnPro Industries shares traded daily (recently around 73785.981308411). EnPro Industries's SIR currently stands at 3.21. In other words for every 100,000 EnPro Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3210 shares are currently held short.
However EnPro Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EnPro Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable EnPro Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EnPro Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EnPro Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0157% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EnPro Industries shares, roughly 16 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 EnPro Industries.

Dividend payout ratio: 43.33% of net profits
Recently EnPro Industries has paid out, on average, around 43.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EnPro Industries shareholders could enjoy a 1.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EnPro Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $1.04 per share.
While EnPro Industries's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that EnPro Industries may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
EnPro Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, EnPro Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.7315 up to $74.31. 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 EnPro Industries's is 1.5643. This would suggest that EnPro Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
