Valuing FirstService Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FirstService Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FirstService 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 82x. In other words, FirstService Corporation shares trade at around 82x 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.
FirstService Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.17. 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 FirstService 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.
FirstService Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$257.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a FirstService Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 296,310 FirstService Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as FirstService Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.9% up from 282,521 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FirstService Corporation shares can be evaluated.
FirstService Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FirstService Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FirstService Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 74077.5). FirstService Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4. In other words for every 100,000 FirstService Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4000 shares are currently held short.
However FirstService Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FirstService Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable FirstService Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FirstService Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FirstService Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FirstService Corporation shares, roughly 0 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 FirstService Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 21.43% of net profits
Recently FirstService Corporation has paid out, on average, around 21.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.49% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FirstService Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FirstService Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.66 per share.
While FirstService Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that FirstService Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
FirstService Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, FirstService Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $57.0895 up to $145.84. 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 FirstService Corporation's is 0.9168. This would suggest that FirstService Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
