Valuing Hillenbrand stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hillenbrand's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hillenbrand's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Hillenbrand shares trade at around 14x 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.
Hillenbrand's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.51. 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 Hillenbrand's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Hillenbrand's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$400.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Hillenbrand's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.4 million Hillenbrand shares held short by investors – that's known as Hillenbrand's "short interest". This figure is 8.4% down from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hillenbrand shares can be evaluated.
Hillenbrand's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hillenbrand shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hillenbrand shares traded daily (recently around 399409.39226519). Hillenbrand's SIR currently stands at 3.62. In other words for every 100,000 Hillenbrand shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3620 shares are currently held short.
However Hillenbrand's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hillenbrand shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hillenbrand shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hillenbrand's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hillenbrand shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.023% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hillenbrand shares, roughly 23 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 Hillenbrand.

Dividend payout ratio: 33.07% of net profits
Recently Hillenbrand has paid out, on average, around 33.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hillenbrand shareholders could enjoy a 2.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hillenbrand's case, that would currently equate to about $0.85 per share.
While Hillenbrand's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Hillenbrand may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Hillenbrand's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Hillenbrand's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.61 up to $34.634. 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 Hillenbrand's is 1.4738. This would suggest that Hillenbrand's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
