Valuing Quaker Chemical Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Quaker Chemical Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Quaker Chemical 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 701x. In other words, Quaker Chemical Corporation shares trade at around 701x 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.
Quaker Chemical Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.67. 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 Quaker Chemical 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.
Quaker Chemical Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$186.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Quaker Chemical Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.8 million Quaker Chemical Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Quaker Chemical Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.7% down from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Quaker Chemical Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Quaker Chemical Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Quaker Chemical Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Quaker Chemical Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 79489.67220476). Quaker Chemical Corporation's SIR currently stands at 22.27. In other words for every 100,000 Quaker Chemical Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 22270 shares are currently held short.
However Quaker Chemical Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Quaker Chemical Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Quaker Chemical Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Quaker Chemical Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Quaker Chemical Corporation shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1571% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Quaker Chemical Corporation shares, roughly 157 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Quaker Chemical Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 34.74% of net profits
Recently Quaker Chemical Corporation has paid out, on average, around 34.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Quaker Chemical Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Quaker Chemical Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.58 per share.
While Quaker Chemical Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Quaker Chemical Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Quaker Chemical Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Quaker Chemical Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 31 July 1990. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Quaker Chemical Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Quaker Chemical Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Quaker Chemical Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Quaker Chemical Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $107.4216 up to $262.5. 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 Quaker Chemical Corporation's is 1.548. This would suggest that Quaker Chemical 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).
