Valuing Oshkosh Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Oshkosh Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Oshkosh 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 17x. In other words, Oshkosh Corporation shares trade at around 17x 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.
Oshkosh Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.5374. 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 Oshkosh Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Oshkosh Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$621.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Oshkosh Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.9 million Oshkosh Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Oshkosh Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% down from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Oshkosh Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Oshkosh Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oshkosh Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oshkosh Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 520857.53424658). Oshkosh Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.65. In other words for every 100,000 Oshkosh Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3650 shares are currently held short.
However Oshkosh Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oshkosh Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oshkosh Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oshkosh Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oshkosh Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0355% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oshkosh Corporation shares, roughly 36 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 Oshkosh Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 24.9% of net profits
Recently Oshkosh Corporation has paid out, on average, around 24.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Oshkosh Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Oshkosh Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.
While Oshkosh Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Oshkosh Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Oshkosh Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Oshkosh Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 August 2005. 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 Oshkosh Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Oshkosh Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Oshkosh Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Oshkosh Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.1056 up to $94.0313. 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 Oshkosh Corporation's is 1.6285. This would suggest that Oshkosh Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
