Valuing LeMaitre Vascular stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of LeMaitre Vascular's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.
LeMaitre Vascular's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.4417. 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 LeMaitre Vascular'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 1.8 million LeMaitre Vascular shares held short by investors – that's known as LeMaitre Vascular's "short interest". This figure is 3.7% down from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting LeMaitre Vascular shares can be evaluated.
LeMaitre Vascular's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LeMaitre Vascular shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LeMaitre Vascular shares traded daily (recently around 112990.89790898). LeMaitre Vascular's SIR currently stands at 16.26. In other words for every 100,000 LeMaitre Vascular shares traded daily on the market, roughly 16260 shares are currently held short.
However LeMaitre Vascular's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LeMaitre Vascular shares, or, against the total number of tradable LeMaitre Vascular shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LeMaitre Vascular's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LeMaitre Vascular shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1267% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LeMaitre Vascular shares, roughly 127 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against LeMaitre Vascular.

Dividend payout ratio: 40.86% of net profits
Recently LeMaitre Vascular has paid out, on average, around 40.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), LeMaitre Vascular shareholders could enjoy a 0.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In LeMaitre Vascular's case, that would currently equate to about $0.38 per share.
While LeMaitre Vascular's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that LeMaitre Vascular may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
LeMaitre Vascular's most recent dividend payout was on 3 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, LeMaitre Vascular's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.6315 up to $41.86. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while LeMaitre Vascular's is 1.3512. This would suggest that LeMaitre Vascular's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
