Valuing Safety Insurance Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Safety Insurance Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Safety Insurance Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Safety Insurance Group shares trade at around 11x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Safety Insurance Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.31. 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 Safety Insurance Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Safety Insurance Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$149.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Safety Insurance Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 167,015 Safety Insurance Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Safety Insurance Group's "short interest". This figure is 5.3% up from 158,632 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Safety Insurance Group shares can be evaluated.
Safety Insurance Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Safety Insurance Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Safety Insurance Group shares traded daily (recently around 63746.183206107). Safety Insurance Group's SIR currently stands at 2.62. In other words for every 100,000 Safety Insurance Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2620 shares are currently held short.
However Safety Insurance Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Safety Insurance Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Safety Insurance Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Safety Insurance Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Safety Insurance Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0191% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Safety Insurance Group 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 Safety Insurance Group.

Recently Safety Insurance Group has paid out, on average, around 44.23% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Safety Insurance Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Safety Insurance Group's case, that would currently equate to about $3.6 per share.
While Safety Insurance Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Safety Insurance Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Safety Insurance Group's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
