Valuing Materion Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Materion Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Materion 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 50x. In other words, Materion Corporation shares trade at around 50x 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.
Materion Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.35. 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 Materion 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.
Materion Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$83.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Materion Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 317,965 Materion Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Materion Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 10.4% down from 355,006 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Materion Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Materion Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Materion Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Materion Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 90847.142857143). Materion Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.5. In other words for every 100,000 Materion Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3500 shares are currently held short.
However Materion Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Materion Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Materion Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Materion Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Materion Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0221% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Materion Corporation shares, roughly 22 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 Materion Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 21.16% of net profits
Recently Materion Corporation has paid out, on average, around 21.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Materion Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Materion Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.46 per share.
While Materion Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Materion Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Materion Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Materion Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 June 1984. 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 Materion Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Materion Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Materion Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Materion Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.9866 up to $63.5639. 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 Materion Corporation's is 1.4842. This would suggest that Materion Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
