Valuing Movado Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Movado Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Movado Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Movado Group shares trade at around 6x 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.
Movado Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.16. 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 Movado Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Movado Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$22.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Movado Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.5 million Movado Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Movado Group's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% down from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Movado Group shares can be evaluated.
Movado Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Movado Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Movado Group shares traded daily (recently around 162545.66596195). Movado Group's SIR currently stands at 9.46. In other words for every 100,000 Movado Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9460 shares are currently held short.
However Movado Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Movado Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Movado Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Movado Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Movado Group shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1329% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Movado Group shares, roughly 133 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 Movado Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 90.91% of net profits
Recently Movado Group has paid out, on average, around 90.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Movado Group shareholders could enjoy a 7.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Movado Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
Movado Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Movado Group's most recent dividend payout was on 20 December 2019. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 December 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").
Movado Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 June 2004. 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 Movado Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Movado Group shares which in turn could have impacted Movado Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Movado Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.12 up to $22.12. 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 Movado Group's is 0.6539. This would suggest that Movado Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
