Valuing Knoll stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Knoll's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Knoll's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Knoll shares trade at around 21x 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.
Knoll's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.91. 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 Knoll's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Knoll's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$151.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Knoll's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 859,654 Knoll shares held short by investors – that's known as Knoll's "short interest". This figure is 37% down from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Knoll shares can be evaluated.
Knoll's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Knoll shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Knoll shares traded daily (recently around 373762.60869565). Knoll's SIR currently stands at 2.3. In other words for every 100,000 Knoll shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2300 shares are currently held short.
However Knoll's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Knoll shares, or, against the total number of tradable Knoll shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Knoll's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Knoll shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0173% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Knoll shares, roughly 17 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 Knoll.

Dividend payout ratio: 26.51% of net profits
Recently Knoll has paid out, on average, around 26.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Knoll shareholders could enjoy a 1.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Knoll's case, that would currently equate to about $0.24 per share.
While Knoll's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Knoll may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Knoll'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").
Over the last 12 months, Knoll's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.74 up to $28.3. 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 Knoll's is 1.877. This would suggest that Knoll's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
