Valuing National Research Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of National Research Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
National Research 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 32x. In other words, National Research Corporation shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 171,365 National Research Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as National Research Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% up from 158,417 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting National Research Corporation shares can be evaluated.
National Research Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of National Research Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of National Research Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 21609.709962169). National Research Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.93. In other words for every 100,000 National Research Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7930 shares are currently held short.
However National Research Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of National Research Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable National Research Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case National Research Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 National Research Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0162% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable National Research Corporation shares, roughly 16 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 National Research Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 28.67% of net profits
Recently National Research Corporation has paid out, on average, around 28.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), National Research Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In National Research Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 per share.
While National Research Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that National Research Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
National Research Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, National Research Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.8307 up to $70.9973. 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 National Research Corporation's is 0.7228. This would suggest that National Research Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
