Valuing Terex Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Terex Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Terex 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 180x. In other words, Terex Corporation shares trade at around 180x 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.
Terex Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5387. 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 Terex 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.
Terex Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$113.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Terex Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.5 million Terex Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Terex Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 10.8% down from 2.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Terex Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Terex Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Terex Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Terex Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 798503.47003155). Terex Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.17. In other words for every 100,000 Terex Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3170 shares are currently held short.
However Terex Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Terex Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Terex Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Terex Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Terex Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0488% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Terex Corporation shares, roughly 49 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 Terex Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 44.44% of net profits
Recently Terex Corporation has paid out, on average, around 44.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Terex Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Terex Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
While Terex Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Terex Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Terex Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 19 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Terex Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 July 2006. 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 Terex Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Terex Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Terex Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Terex Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.54 up to $33.49. 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 Terex Corporation's is 1.4814. This would suggest that Terex 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).
