Valuing FutureFuel stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FutureFuel's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FutureFuel's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 48x. In other words, FutureFuel shares trade at around 48x 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.
FutureFuel's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a FutureFuel's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 460,663 FutureFuel shares held short by investors – that's known as FutureFuel's "short interest". This figure is 41.1% down from 782,088 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FutureFuel shares can be evaluated.
FutureFuel's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FutureFuel shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FutureFuel shares traded daily (recently around 303067.76315789). FutureFuel's SIR currently stands at 1.52. In other words for every 100,000 FutureFuel shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1520 shares are currently held short.
However FutureFuel's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FutureFuel shares, or, against the total number of tradable FutureFuel shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FutureFuel's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FutureFuel shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0178% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FutureFuel shares, roughly 18 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 FutureFuel.

Dividend payout ratio: 33.98% of net profits
Recently FutureFuel has paid out, on average, around 33.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FutureFuel shareholders could enjoy a 3.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FutureFuel's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.
While FutureFuel's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that FutureFuel may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
FutureFuel's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, FutureFuel's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.11 up to $14.8134. 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 FutureFuel's is 0.6. This would suggest that FutureFuel's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
