Valuing Meridian Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Meridian Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Meridian 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 5x. In other words, Meridian Corporation shares trade at around 5x 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 6,870 Meridian Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Meridian Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 34% down from 10,407 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Meridian Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Meridian Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Meridian Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Meridian Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 12490.909090909). Meridian Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.55. In other words for every 100,000 Meridian Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 550 shares are currently held short.
However Meridian Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Meridian Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Meridian Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Meridian Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Meridian Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Meridian Corporation shares, roughly 2 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 Meridian Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 22.76% of net profits
Recently Meridian Corporation has paid out, on average, around 22.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Meridian Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Meridian Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
While Meridian Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Meridian Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Meridian Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Meridian Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.254 up to $31.962. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Meridian Corporation's is 0.5198. This would suggest that Meridian Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
