Valuing M-D-CHoldings stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of M-D-CHoldings's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
M-D-CHoldings's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, M-D-CHoldings shares trade at around 10x 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.
M-D-CHoldings's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.04. 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 M-D-CHoldings's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
M-D-CHoldings's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$426.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a M-D-CHoldings's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.1 million M-D-CHoldings shares held short by investors – that's known as M-D-CHoldings's "short interest". This figure is 8.6% down from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting M-D-CHoldings shares can be evaluated.
M-D-CHoldings's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of M-D-CHoldings shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of M-D-CHoldings shares traded daily (recently around 544901.53061224). M-D-CHoldings's SIR currently stands at 1.96. In other words for every 100,000 M-D-CHoldings shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1960 shares are currently held short.
However M-D-CHoldings's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of M-D-CHoldings shares, or, against the total number of tradable M-D-CHoldings shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case M-D-CHoldings's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 M-D-CHoldings shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0248% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable M-D-CHoldings shares, roughly 25 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 M-D-CHoldings.

Dividend payout ratio: 29.08% of net profits
Recently M-D-CHoldings has paid out, on average, around 29.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), M-D-CHoldings shareholders could enjoy a 3.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In M-D-CHoldings's case, that would currently equate to about $1.6 per share.
While M-D-CHoldings's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that M-D-CHoldings may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
M-D-CHoldings's most recent dividend payout was on 24 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
M-D-CHoldings's shares were split on a 13:12 basis on 13 February 2019. So if you had owned 12 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 13 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your M-D-CHoldings shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 7.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for M-D-CHoldings shares which in turn could have impacted M-D-CHoldings's share price.
Over the last 12 months, M-D-CHoldings's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.3194 up to $52.0428. 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 M-D-CHoldings's is 1.5433. This would suggest that M-D-CHoldings's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
