Valuing GAIN Capital stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GAIN Capital's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GAIN Capital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, GAIN Capital shares trade at around 4x 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.
GAIN Capital's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 16.37. 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 GAIN Capital's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.4 million GAIN Capital shares held short by investors – that's known as GAIN Capital's "short interest". This figure is 35.7% down from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting GAIN Capital shares can be evaluated.
GAIN Capital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GAIN Capital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GAIN Capital shares traded daily (recently around 290318.94736842). GAIN Capital's SIR currently stands at 4.75. In other words for every 100,000 GAIN Capital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4750 shares are currently held short.
However GAIN Capital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GAIN Capital shares, or, against the total number of tradable GAIN Capital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GAIN Capital's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GAIN Capital shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0675% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GAIN Capital shares, roughly 68 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 GAIN Capital.

Dividend payout ratio: 8.14% of net profits
Recently GAIN Capital has paid out, on average, around 8.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GAIN Capital shareholders could enjoy a 3.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GAIN Capital's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.
While GAIN Capital's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that GAIN Capital is investing more in its future growth.
GAIN Capital's most recent dividend payout was on 26 June 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, GAIN Capital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.2261 up to $6.6536. 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 GAIN Capital's is 0.0611. This would suggest that GAIN Capital's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
