Valuing LPL Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of LPL Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
LPL Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, LPL Financial shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
LPL Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.477. 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 LPL Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
LPL Financial's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $908.9 million.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.4 million LPL Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as LPL Financial's "short interest". This figure is 8.5% down from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting LPL Financial shares can be evaluated.
LPL Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LPL Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LPL Financial shares traded daily (recently around 512146.26865672). LPL Financial's SIR currently stands at 2.68. In other words for every 100,000 LPL Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2680 shares are currently held short.
However LPL Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LPL Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable LPL Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LPL Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LPL Financial shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0193% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LPL Financial shares, roughly 19 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 LPL Financial.

Dividend payout ratio: 17.06% of net profits
Recently LPL Financial has paid out, on average, around 17.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), LPL Financial shareholders could enjoy a 0.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In LPL Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
While LPL Financial's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that LPL Financial is investing more in its future growth.
LPL Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 29 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, LPL Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $56.7133 up to $155.5. 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 LPL Financial's is 1.2642. This would suggest that LPL Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
