Valuing Standard Motor Products stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Standard Motor Products's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Standard Motor Products's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Standard Motor Products shares trade at around 15x 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.
Standard Motor Products's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.34. 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 Standard Motor Products's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Standard Motor Products's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$122.9 million.

There are currently 184,495 Standard Motor Products shares held short by investors – that's known as Standard Motor Products's "short interest". This figure is 41.1% down from 313,263 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Standard Motor Products shares can be evaluated.

Standard Motor Products's SIR currently stands at 1.87. In other words for every 100,000 Standard Motor Products shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1870 shares are currently held short.
However Standard Motor Products's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Standard Motor Products shares, or, against the total number of tradable Standard Motor Products shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Standard Motor Products's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Standard Motor Products shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0104% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Standard Motor Products shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).

Dividend payout ratio: 15.97% of net profits
Recently Standard Motor Products has paid out, on average, around 15.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Standard Motor Products shareholders could enjoy a 2.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Standard Motor Products's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
While Standard Motor Products's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Standard Motor Products is investing more in its future growth.
Standard Motor Products's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Standard Motor Products's shares were split on a 5:2 basis on 2 December 1983. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Standard Motor Products shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 60% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Standard Motor Products shares which in turn could have impacted Standard Motor Products's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Standard Motor Products's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.3215 up to $53.6859. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
