Valuing Lindsay Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lindsay Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lindsay 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 40x. In other words, Lindsay Corporation shares trade at around 40x recent earnings.
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.
Lindsay Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.55. 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 Lindsay 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.

There are currently 227,469 Lindsay Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Lindsay Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 19.2% down from 281,349 last month.

Lindsay Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.18. In other words for every 100,000 Lindsay Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3180 shares are currently held short.
However Lindsay Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lindsay Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lindsay Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lindsay Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lindsay Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0289% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lindsay Corporation shares, roughly 29 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 Lindsay Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 32.17% of net profits
Recently Lindsay Corporation has paid out, on average, around 32.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lindsay Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lindsay Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.28 per share.
While Lindsay Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Lindsay Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Lindsay Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 25 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Lindsay Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 June 1998. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lindsay Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lindsay Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Lindsay Corporation's share price.
