Valuing ProAssurance Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ProAssurance Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ProAssurance 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 1252x. In other words, ProAssurance Corporation shares trade at around 1252x 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.
ProAssurance Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.02. 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 ProAssurance 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.
ProAssurance Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$58.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ProAssurance Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 662,458 ProAssurance Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as ProAssurance Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 12.9% down from 760,785 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ProAssurance Corporation shares can be evaluated.
ProAssurance Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ProAssurance Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ProAssurance Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 255775.28957529). ProAssurance Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.59. In other words for every 100,000 ProAssurance Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2590 shares are currently held short.
However ProAssurance Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ProAssurance Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable ProAssurance Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ProAssurance Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ProAssurance Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0194% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ProAssurance Corporation shares, roughly 19 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 ProAssurance Corporation.
