Valuing Marine Products Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Marine Products Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Marine Products 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 35x. In other words, Marine Products Corporation 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.
Marine Products Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.44. 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 Marine Products 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.
Marine Products Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$23 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Marine Products Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 351,514 Marine Products Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Marine Products Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 14.4% up from 307,245 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Marine Products Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Marine Products Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Marine Products Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Marine Products Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 136245.73643411). Marine Products Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.58. In other words for every 100,000 Marine Products Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2580 shares are currently held short.
However Marine Products Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marine Products Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Marine Products Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marine Products Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Marine Products Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0495% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Marine Products Corporation shares, roughly 50 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 Marine Products Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 100% of net profits
Recently Marine Products Corporation has paid out, on average, around 100% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Marine Products Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Marine Products Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.
Marine Products Corporation'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.
Marine Products Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 10 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Marine Products Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 March 2005. 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 Marine Products Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Marine Products Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Marine Products Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Marine Products Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.77 up to $22.61. 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 Marine Products Corporation's is 1.2173. This would suggest that Marine Products Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
