Valuing Newell Brands stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Newell Brands's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Newell Brands'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, Newell Brands 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.
Newell Brands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.42. 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 Newell Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Newell Brands's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Newell Brands's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 12.4 million Newell Brands shares held short by investors – that's known as Newell Brands's "short interest". This figure is 4.7% down from 13.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Newell Brands shares can be evaluated.
Newell Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Newell Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Newell Brands shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million). Newell Brands's SIR currently stands at 4.25. In other words for every 100,000 Newell Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4250 shares are currently held short.
However Newell Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Newell Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Newell Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Newell Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Newell Brands shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0434% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Newell Brands shares, roughly 43 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 Newell Brands.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Newell Brands is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 6.68/100
Newell Brands's environmental score of 6.68 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Newell Brands is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 7.8/100

Dividend payout ratio: 59.74% of net profits
Recently Newell Brands has paid out, on average, around 59.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Newell Brands shareholders could enjoy a 5.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Newell Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0.92 per share.
Newell Brands'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.
Newell Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Newell Brands's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 September 1994. 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 Newell Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Newell Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Newell Brands's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Newell Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.44 up to $20.99. 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 Newell Brands's is 0.9774. This would suggest that Newell Brands's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
