Valuing Owens Corning stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Owens Corning's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Owens Corning's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Owens Corning shares trade at around 10x 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.
Owens Corning's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8213. 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 Owens Corning's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Owens Corning's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Owens Corning's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.7 million Owens Corning shares held short by investors – that's known as Owens Corning's "short interest". This figure is 11.8% down from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Owens Corning shares can be evaluated.
Owens Corning's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Owens Corning shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Owens Corning shares traded daily (recently around 884380.41237113). Owens Corning's SIR currently stands at 1.94. In other words for every 100,000 Owens Corning shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1940 shares are currently held short.
However Owens Corning's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Owens Corning shares, or, against the total number of tradable Owens Corning shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Owens Corning's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Owens Corning shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Owens Corning shares, roughly 18 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 Owens Corning.

Environmental score: 11.48/100
Owens Corning's environmental score of 11.48 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Owens Corning is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Dividend payout ratio: 22.64% of net profits
Recently Owens Corning has paid out, on average, around 22.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Owens Corning shareholders could enjoy a 1.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Owens Corning's case, that would currently equate to about $0.96 per share.
While Owens Corning's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Owens Corning is investing more in its future growth.
Owens Corning's most recent dividend payout was on 6 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Owens Corning's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.56 up to $76.6. 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 Owens Corning's is 1.5461. This would suggest that Owens Corning's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
