Valuing Kaman Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kaman Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kaman 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 1384x. In other words, Kaman Corporation shares trade at around 1384x 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.
Kaman Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.24. 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 Kaman 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.
Kaman Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$141.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Kaman Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 742,117 Kaman Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Kaman Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 12.1% up from 661,879 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kaman Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Kaman Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kaman Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kaman Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 127511.51202749). Kaman Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.82. In other words for every 100,000 Kaman Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5820 shares are currently held short.
However Kaman Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kaman Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kaman Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kaman Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kaman Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0458% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kaman Corporation shares, roughly 46 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Kaman Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 34.19% of net profits
Recently Kaman Corporation has paid out, on average, around 34.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kaman Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kaman Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
While Kaman Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Kaman Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Kaman Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Kaman Corporation's shares were split on a 8:5 basis on 2 November 1987. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 8 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kaman Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 37.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kaman Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kaman Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Kaman Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.9948 up to $65.4779. 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 Kaman Corporation's is 1.2367. This would suggest that Kaman Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
