Valuing Loral Space-and-Communications stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Loral Space-and-Communications's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Loral Space-and-Communications's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 65x. In other words, Loral Space-and-Communications shares trade at around 65x 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.

There are currently 872,665 Loral Space-and-Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Loral Space-and-Communications's "short interest". This figure is 8% up from 808,162 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Loral Space-and-Communications shares can be evaluated.
Loral Space-and-Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Loral Space-and-Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Loral Space-and-Communications shares traded daily (recently around 281504.83870968). Loral Space-and-Communications's SIR currently stands at 3.1. In other words for every 100,000 Loral Space-and-Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3100 shares are currently held short.
However Loral Space-and-Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Loral Space-and-Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Loral Space-and-Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Loral Space-and-Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Loral Space-and-Communications shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0603% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Loral Space-and-Communications shares, roughly 60 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 Loral Space-and-Communications.

Dividend payout ratio: 405.44% of net profits
Recently Loral Space-and-Communications has paid out, on average, around 405.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Loral Space-and-Communications shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Loral Space-and-Communications's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.
Loral Space-and-Communications'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.
Loral Space-and-Communications's most recent dividend payout was on 17 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Loral Space-and-Communications's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 16 June 2003. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Loral Space-and-Communications shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Loral Space-and-Communications shares which in turn could have impacted Loral Space-and-Communications's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Loral Space-and-Communications's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.9421 up to $26.4722. 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 Loral Space-and-Communications's is 1.8472. This would suggest that Loral Space-and-Communications's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
