Maxar Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Maxar Technologies shares trade at around 13x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 8.3 million Maxar Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Maxar Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% up from 7.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Maxar Technologies shares can be evaluated.
Maxar Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Maxar Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Maxar Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Maxar Technologies's SIR currently stands at 5.89. In other words for every 100,000 Maxar Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5890 shares are currently held short.
However Maxar Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Maxar Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Maxar Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Maxar Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Maxar Technologies shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1374% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Maxar Technologies shares, roughly 137 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Maxar Technologies.

Dividend payout ratio: 1.9% of net profits
Recently Maxar Technologies has paid out, on average, around 1.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Maxar Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Maxar Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.04 per share.
While Maxar Technologies's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Maxar Technologies is investing more in its future growth.
Maxar Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Maxar Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.18 up to $30.54. 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 Maxar Technologies's is 1.2488. This would suggest that Maxar Technologies'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).
