Valuing nVent Electric stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of nVent Electric's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
nVent Electric's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, nVent Electric shares trade at around 22x 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.
nVent Electric's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.7578. 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 nVent Electric's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
nVent Electric's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $370.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a nVent Electric's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.9 million nVent Electric shares held short by investors – that's known as nVent Electric's "short interest". This figure is 36.2% down from 3.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting nVent Electric shares can be evaluated.
nVent Electric's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of nVent Electric shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of nVent Electric shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). nVent Electric's SIR currently stands at 0.86. In other words for every 100,000 nVent Electric shares traded daily on the market, roughly 860 shares are currently held short.
However nVent Electric's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of nVent Electric shares, or, against the total number of tradable nVent Electric shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case nVent Electric's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 nVent Electric shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0113% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable nVent Electric shares, roughly 11 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 nVent Electric.

Dividend payout ratio: 46.36% of net profits
Recently nVent Electric has paid out, on average, around 46.36% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), nVent Electric shareholders could enjoy a 2.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In nVent Electric's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.
While nVent Electric's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that nVent Electric may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
nVent Electric's most recent dividend payout was on 6 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, nVent Electric's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.165 up to $27.785. 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 nVent Electric's is 1.5374. This would suggest that nVent Electric's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
