Valuing ITT stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ITT's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ITT's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, ITT shares trade at around 18x 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.
ITT's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4394. 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 ITT's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ITT's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$461.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ITT's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

|Operating margin TTM||13.3%|

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 840,853 ITT shares held short by investors – that's known as ITT's "short interest". This figure is 15.8% down from 998,398 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ITT shares can be evaluated.
ITT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ITT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ITT shares traded daily (recently around 464559.66850829). ITT's SIR currently stands at 1.81. In other words for every 100,000 ITT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1810 shares are currently held short.
However ITT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ITT shares, or, against the total number of tradable ITT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ITT's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ITT shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0109% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ITT shares, roughly 11 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 ITT.

Dividend payout ratio: 19.64% of net profits
Recently ITT has paid out, on average, around 19.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ITT shareholders could enjoy a 1.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ITT's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
While ITT's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ITT is investing more in its future growth.
ITT's most recent dividend payout was on 30 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
ITT's shares were split on a 10000:3316 basis on 1 November 2011. So if you had owned 3316 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 ITT shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ITT shares which in turn could have impacted ITT's share price.
Over the last 12 months, ITT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.41 up to $75.56. 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 ITT's is 1.5891. This would suggest that ITT's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
