Valuing Hill-Rom stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hill-Rom's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hill-Rom's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Hill-Rom shares trade at around 30x 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.
Hill-Rom's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.71. 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 Hill-Rom's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Hill-Rom's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$565.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Hill-Rom's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 541,796 Hill-Rom shares held short by investors – that's known as Hill-Rom's "short interest". This figure is 21.1% down from 686,376 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hill-Rom shares can be evaluated.
Hill-Rom's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hill-Rom shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hill-Rom shares traded daily (recently around 436932.25806452). Hill-Rom's SIR currently stands at 1.24. In other words for every 100,000 Hill-Rom shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1240 shares are currently held short.
However Hill-Rom's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hill-Rom shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hill-Rom shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hill-Rom's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hill-Rom shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0091% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hill-Rom shares, roughly 9 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 Hill-Rom.

Dividend payout ratio: 15.91% of net profits
Recently Hill-Rom has paid out, on average, around 15.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hill-Rom shareholders could enjoy a 0.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hill-Rom's case, that would currently equate to about $0.88 per share.
While Hill-Rom's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Hill-Rom is investing more in its future growth.
Hill-Rom's most recent dividend payout was on 31 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Hill-Rom's shares were split on a 10000:5366 basis on 1 April 2008. So if you had owned 5366 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hill-Rom shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 46.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hill-Rom shares which in turn could have impacted Hill-Rom's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Hill-Rom's shares have ranged in value from as little as $71.7671 up to $117.0992. 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 Hill-Rom's is 0.5911. This would suggest that Hill-Rom's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
