Valuing Nexstar Media Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nexstar Media Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nexstar Media 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 7x. In other words, Nexstar Media Group shares trade at around 7x 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.
Nexstar Media Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.9203. 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 Nexstar Media 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.
Nexstar Media Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Nexstar Media Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.3 million Nexstar Media Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Nexstar Media Group's "short interest". This figure is 25.1% down from 1.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Nexstar Media Group shares can be evaluated.
Nexstar Media Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nexstar Media Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nexstar Media Group shares traded daily (recently around 259440.43392505). Nexstar Media Group's SIR currently stands at 5.07. In other words for every 100,000 Nexstar Media Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5070 shares are currently held short.
However Nexstar Media Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nexstar Media Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nexstar Media Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nexstar Media Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nexstar Media Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0329% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nexstar Media Group shares, roughly 33 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 Nexstar Media Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 12.68% of net profits
Recently Nexstar Media Group has paid out, on average, around 12.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nexstar Media Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nexstar Media Group's case, that would currently equate to about $2.52 per share.
While Nexstar Media Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Nexstar Media Group is investing more in its future growth.
Nexstar Media Group's most recent dividend payout was on 26 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Nexstar Media Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $78.6767 up to $162.0748. 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 Nexstar Media Group's is 1.8641. This would suggest that Nexstar Media Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
