Valuing Matson stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Matson's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Matson's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Matson shares trade at around 15x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Matson's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.31. 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 Matson's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Matson's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$375.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Matson's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.0 million Matson shares held short by investors – that's known as Matson's "short interest". This figure is 24.6% up from 832,025 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Matson shares can be evaluated.
Matson's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Matson shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Matson shares traded daily (recently around 349083.5016835). Matson's SIR currently stands at 2.97. In other words for every 100,000 Matson shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2970 shares are currently held short.
However Matson's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Matson shares, or, against the total number of tradable Matson shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Matson's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Matson shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0292% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Matson shares, roughly 29 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 Matson.

Dividend payout ratio: 20.5% of net profits
Recently Matson has paid out, on average, around 20.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Matson shareholders could enjoy a 1.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Matson's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.
While Matson's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Matson is investing more in its future growth.
Matson's most recent dividend payout was on 3 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Matson's shares were split on a 10000:4795 basis on 1 July 2012. So if you had owned 4795 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Matson shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 52.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Matson shares which in turn could have impacted Matson's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Matson's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.4251 up to $79.05. 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 Matson's is 1.0072. This would suggest that Matson'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).
