Valuing GATX Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GATX Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GATX 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 22x. In other words, GATX Corporation shares trade at around 22x 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.
GATX Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.87. 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 GATX 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.
GATX Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $639.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a GATX Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.2 million GATX Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as GATX Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% down from 4.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting GATX Corporation shares can be evaluated.
GATX Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GATX Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GATX Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 124846.48390942). GATX Corporation's SIR currently stands at 33.56. In other words for every 100,000 GATX Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 33560 shares are currently held short.
However GATX Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GATX Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable GATX Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GATX Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GATX Corporation shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1198% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GATX Corporation shares, roughly 120 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against GATX Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 49.87% of net profits
Recently GATX Corporation has paid out, on average, around 49.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GATX Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GATX Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.94 per share.
While GATX Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that GATX Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
GATX Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
GATX Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 June 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your GATX Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GATX Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted GATX Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, GATX Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $55.2454 up to $105.7637. 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 GATX Corporation's is 0.9989. This would suggest that GATX Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
