Valuing Roper Technologies stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Roper Technologies's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Roper Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Roper Technologies shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Roper Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4692. 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 Roper Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Roper Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Roper Technologies's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.5 million Roper Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Roper Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 34.5% up from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Roper Technologies shares can be evaluated.
Roper Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Roper Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Roper Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 529812.40875912). Roper Technologies's SIR currently stands at 2.74. In other words for every 100,000 Roper Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2740 shares are currently held short.
However Roper Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Roper Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Roper Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Roper Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Roper Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0164% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Roper Technologies shares, roughly 16 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 Roper Technologies.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Roper Technologies.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 21.84
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Roper Technologies's overall score of 21.84 (as at 10/01/2020) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 25th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Roper Technologies is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 2.63/100
Roper Technologies's environmental score of 2.63 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Roper Technologies is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Dividend payout ratio: 16.18% of net profits
Recently Roper Technologies has paid out, on average, around 16.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Roper Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Roper Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $2.05 per share.
While Roper Technologies's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Roper Technologies is investing more in its future growth.
Roper Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 20 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Roper Technologies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 August 2005. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Roper Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Roper Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Roper Technologies's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Roper Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $240 up to $455.72. 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 Roper Technologies's is 1.059. This would suggest that Roper Technologies's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
