Valuing Textron stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Textron's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Textron's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Textron shares trade at around 22x 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.
Textron's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.74. 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 Textron's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Textron's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Textron's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6.1 million Textron shares held short by investors – that's known as Textron's "short interest". This figure is 11.2% down from 6.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Textron shares can be evaluated.
Textron's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Textron shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Textron shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Textron's SIR currently stands at 4.6. In other words for every 100,000 Textron shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4600 shares are currently held short.
However Textron's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Textron shares, or, against the total number of tradable Textron shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Textron's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Textron shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.036% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Textron shares, roughly 36 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 Textron.

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 Textron.
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: 37.31
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Textron's overall score of 37.31 (as at 10/01/2020) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 79th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Textron 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: 6.49/100
Social score: 15.19/100
Governance score: 6.12/100
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Textron scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Textron has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||37.31|
|Total ESG percentile||78.8|
|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 3% of net profits
Recently Textron has paid out, on average, around 3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Textron shareholders could enjoy a 0.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Textron's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.
While Textron's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Textron is investing more in its future growth.
Textron's most recent dividend payout was on 1 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Textron's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 August 2007. 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 Textron shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Textron shares which in turn could have impacted Textron's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Textron's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.26 up to $51.53. 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 Textron's is 1.6922. This would suggest that Textron's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
