Valuing Meredith Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Meredith Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Meredith 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 7x. In other words, Meredith Corporation shares trade at around 7x 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.
Meredith Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.23. 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 Meredith 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.
Meredith Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $681.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Meredith Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.2 million Meredith Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Meredith Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 17.6% down from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Meredith Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Meredith Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Meredith Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Meredith Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 187330.50314465). Meredith Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.36. In other words for every 100,000 Meredith Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6360 shares are currently held short.
However Meredith Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Meredith Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Meredith Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Meredith Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Meredith Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0298% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Meredith Corporation shares, roughly 30 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 Meredith Corporation.

Meredith Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 March 1997. 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 Meredith Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Meredith Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Meredith Corporation's share price.
