Valuing Park National Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Park National Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Park National 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 16x. In other words, Park National Corporation shares trade at around 16x recent earnings.
Park National Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.82. 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 Park National 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 650,678 Park National Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Park National Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 20.4% down from 817,449 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Park National Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Park National Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Park National Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Park National Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 49746.024464832). Park National Corporation's SIR currently stands at 13.08. In other words for every 100,000 Park National Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13080 shares are currently held short.
However Park National Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Park National Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Park National Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Park National Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Park National Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0496% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Park National Corporation shares, roughly 50 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Park National Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 66.88% of net profits
Recently Park National Corporation has paid out, on average, around 66.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Park National Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Park National Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $4.08 per share.
Park National Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Park National Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Park National Corporation's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 29 November 2004. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Park National Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Park National Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Park National Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Park National Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $63.143 up to $109.78. 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 MKT average) beta is 1, while Park National Corporation's is 0.8572. This would suggest that Park National Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
