Valuing Kemper Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kemper Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kemper 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 10x. In other words, Kemper Corporation shares trade at around 10x 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.
Kemper Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.29. 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 Kemper 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.
Kemper Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$710.9 million.

There are currently 520,481 Kemper Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Kemper Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% down from 577,651 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kemper Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Kemper Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.12. In other words for every 100,000 Kemper Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2120 shares are currently held short.
However Kemper Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kemper Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kemper Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kemper Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kemper Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0085% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kemper Corporation 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 Kemper Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 16.83% of net profits
Recently Kemper Corporation has paid out, on average, around 16.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kemper Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kemper Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.

Kemper Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 March 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kemper Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kemper Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kemper Corporation's share price.
