Valuing Moog stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Moog's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Moog's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Moog shares trade at around 16x 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.
Moog's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$333.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Moog's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 631,412 Moog shares held short by investors – that's known as Moog's "short interest". This figure is 37.7% up from 458,607 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Moog shares can be evaluated.
Moog's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Moog shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Moog shares traded daily (recently around 214037.96610169). Moog's SIR currently stands at 2.95. In other words for every 100,000 Moog shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2950 shares are currently held short.
However Moog's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Moog shares, or, against the total number of tradable Moog shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Moog's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Moog shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0364% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Moog shares, roughly 36 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 Moog.

Dividend payout ratio: 12.32% of net profits
Recently Moog has paid out, on average, around 12.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Moog shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Moog's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
While Moog's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Moog is investing more in its future growth.
Moog's most recent dividend payout was on 4 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Moog's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 4 April 2005. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Moog shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Moog shares which in turn could have impacted Moog's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Moog's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.49 up to $95.93. 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 Moog's is 1.5146. This would suggest that Moog's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
