Valuing Silgan stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Silgan's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Silgan's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Silgan shares trade at around 14x 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.
Silgan's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4064. 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 Silgan's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Silgan's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$729.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Silgan's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.8 million Silgan shares held short by investors – that's known as Silgan's "short interest". This figure is 15.6% down from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Silgan shares can be evaluated.
Silgan's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Silgan shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Silgan shares traded daily (recently around 624503.11418685). Silgan's SIR currently stands at 2.89. In other words for every 100,000 Silgan shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2890 shares are currently held short.
However Silgan's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Silgan shares, or, against the total number of tradable Silgan shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Silgan's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Silgan shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0183% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Silgan shares, roughly 18 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 Silgan.

Dividend payout ratio: 16.9% of net profits
Recently Silgan has paid out, on average, around 16.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.36% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Silgan shareholders could enjoy a 1.36% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Silgan's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
While Silgan's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Silgan is investing more in its future growth.
Silgan'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").
Silgan's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 May 2017. 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 Silgan shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Silgan shares which in turn could have impacted Silgan's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Silgan's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.3939 up to $40.2978. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Silgan's is 0.716. This would suggest that Silgan's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
