Valuing Pan American Silver stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Pan American Silver's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Pan American Silver's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 109x. In other words, Pan American Silver shares trade at around 109x 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.
Pan American Silver's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.59. 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 Pan American Silver's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Pan American Silver's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$454.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Pan American Silver's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.4 million Pan American Silver shares held short by investors – that's known as Pan American Silver's "short interest". This figure is 22.8% up from 2.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pan American Silver shares can be evaluated.
Pan American Silver's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pan American Silver shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pan American Silver shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Pan American Silver's SIR currently stands at 1.62. In other words for every 100,000 Pan American Silver shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1620 shares are currently held short.
However Pan American Silver's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pan American Silver shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pan American Silver shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pan American Silver's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pan American Silver shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pan American Silver shares, roughly 0 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 Pan American Silver.

Dividend payout ratio: 24.18% of net profits
Recently Pan American Silver has paid out, on average, around 24.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Pan American Silver shareholders could enjoy a 0.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Pan American Silver's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.
While Pan American Silver's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Pan American Silver is investing more in its future growth.
Pan American Silver's most recent dividend payout was on 27 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Pan American Silver's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.5502 up to $39.9657. 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 Pan American Silver's is 1.634. This would suggest that Pan American Silver's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
