Valuing Huntsman Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Huntsman Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Huntsman 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 73x. In other words, Huntsman Corporation shares trade at around 73x 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.
Huntsman Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.79. 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 Huntsman 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.
Huntsman Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$465 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Huntsman Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.7 million Huntsman Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Huntsman Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 30.1% down from 3.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Huntsman Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Huntsman Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Huntsman Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Huntsman Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Huntsman Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.51. In other words for every 100,000 Huntsman Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1510 shares are currently held short.
However Huntsman Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Huntsman Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Huntsman Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Huntsman Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Huntsman Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0151% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Huntsman Corporation shares, roughly 15 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 Huntsman Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 76.47% of net profits
Recently Huntsman Corporation has paid out, on average, around 76.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Huntsman Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Huntsman Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.65 per share.
Huntsman Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Huntsman Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Huntsman Corporation's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 4 July 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Huntsman Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Huntsman Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Huntsman Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Huntsman Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.23 up to $25.12. 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 Huntsman Corporation's is 1.9167. This would suggest that Huntsman Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
