Valuing Griffon Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Griffon Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Griffon 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 17x. In other words, Griffon Corporation shares trade at around 17x 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.
Griffon Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.36. 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 Griffon 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.
Griffon Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$236 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Griffon Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.2 million Griffon Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Griffon Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 37.7% down from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Griffon Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Griffon Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Griffon Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Griffon Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 513234.07079646). Griffon Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.26. In other words for every 100,000 Griffon Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2260 shares are currently held short.
However Griffon Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Griffon Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Griffon Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Griffon Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Griffon Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0303% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Griffon Corporation shares, roughly 30 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 Griffon Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 26.07% of net profits
Recently Griffon Corporation has paid out, on average, around 26.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Griffon Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Griffon Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.3 per share.
While Griffon Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Griffon Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Griffon Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 17 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Griffon Corporation's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 16 August 2001. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Griffon Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Griffon Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Griffon Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Griffon Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.0408 up to $24.8457. 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 Griffon Corporation's is 2.0294. This would suggest that Griffon Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
