Valuing Magna International stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Magna International's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Magna International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, Magna International shares trade at around 35x 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.
Magna International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.85. 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 Magna International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Magna International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Magna International's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.7 million Magna International shares held short by investors – that's known as Magna International's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% down from 1.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Magna International shares can be evaluated.
Magna International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Magna International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Magna International shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Magna International's SIR currently stands at 1.4. In other words for every 100,000 Magna International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1400 shares are currently held short.
However Magna International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Magna International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Magna International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Magna International's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Magna International shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Magna International shares, roughly 0 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 Magna International.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Magna International.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 21.85
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Magna International's overall score of 21.85 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 29th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Magna International is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 3.39/100
Magna International's environmental score of 3.39 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Magna International is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 9.45/100
Magna International's social score of 9.45 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Magna International is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Dividend payout ratio: 41.48% of net profits
Recently Magna International has paid out, on average, around 41.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Magna International shareholders could enjoy a 1.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Magna International's case, that would currently equate to about $1.63 per share.
While Magna International's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Magna International may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Magna International's most recent dividend payout was on 18 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Magna International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 March 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Magna International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Magna International shares which in turn could have impacted Magna International's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Magna International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.0938 up to $90.22. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Magna International's is 1.563. This would suggest that Magna International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
