Valuing Lifetime Brands stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lifetime Brands's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lifetime Brands'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, Lifetime Brands 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.
Lifetime Brands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7241. 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 Lifetime Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Lifetime Brands's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $90.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Lifetime Brands's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 153,520 Lifetime Brands shares held short by investors – that's known as Lifetime Brands's "short interest". This figure is 7.5% up from 142,867 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lifetime Brands shares can be evaluated.
Lifetime Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lifetime Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lifetime Brands shares traded daily (recently around 57283.582089552). Lifetime Brands's SIR currently stands at 2.68. In other words for every 100,000 Lifetime Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2680 shares are currently held short.
However Lifetime Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lifetime Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lifetime Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lifetime Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lifetime Brands shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0128% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lifetime Brands shares, roughly 13 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 Lifetime Brands.

Dividend payout ratio: 9.66% of net profits
Recently Lifetime Brands has paid out, on average, around 9.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lifetime Brands shareholders could enjoy a 0.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lifetime Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.17 per share.
While Lifetime Brands's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Lifetime Brands is investing more in its future growth.
Lifetime Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 14 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Lifetime Brands's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 12 February 1997. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lifetime Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lifetime Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Lifetime Brands's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Lifetime Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.22 up to $19.93. 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 Lifetime Brands's is 1.3328. This would suggest that Lifetime Brands's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
