Valuing KeyCorp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of KeyCorp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
KeyCorp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, KeyCorp shares trade at around 12x 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.
KeyCorp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0761. 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 KeyCorp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 18.1 million KeyCorp shares held short by investors – that's known as KeyCorp's "short interest". This figure is 16.7% up from 15.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting KeyCorp shares can be evaluated.
KeyCorp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of KeyCorp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of KeyCorp shares traded daily (recently around 8.8 million). KeyCorp's SIR currently stands at 2.05. In other words for every 100,000 KeyCorp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2050 shares are currently held short.
However KeyCorp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of KeyCorp shares, or, against the total number of tradable KeyCorp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case KeyCorp's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 KeyCorp shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0211% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable KeyCorp shares, roughly 21 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 KeyCorp.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like KeyCorp.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 24.92
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and KeyCorp's overall score of 24.92 (as at 10/01/2020) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 38th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like KeyCorp is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 0.82/100
KeyCorp's environmental score of 0.82 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that KeyCorp is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 11.03/100
KeyCorp's social score of 11.03 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that KeyCorp is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 11.22/100
KeyCorp's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that KeyCorp is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 1/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. KeyCorp scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that KeyCorp has managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||24.92|
|Total ESG percentile||38.36|
|Environmental score percentile||1|
|Social score percentile||1|
|Governance score percentile||1|
|Level of controversy||1|
Dividend payout ratio: 64.35% of net profits
Recently KeyCorp has paid out, on average, around 64.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), KeyCorp shareholders could enjoy a 5.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In KeyCorp's case, that would currently equate to about $0.74 per share.
KeyCorp'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.
KeyCorp's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
KeyCorp's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 March 1998. 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 KeyCorp shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for KeyCorp shares which in turn could have impacted KeyCorp's share price.
Over the last 12 months, KeyCorp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.45 up to $20.525. 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 KeyCorp's is 1.4705. This would suggest that KeyCorp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
