Valuing Tractor Supply Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Tractor Supply Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Tractor Supply Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Tractor Supply Company shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Tractor Supply Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9962. 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 Tractor Supply Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 7.9 million Tractor Supply Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Tractor Supply Company's "short interest". This figure is 7.6% up from 7.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Tractor Supply Company shares can be evaluated.
Tractor Supply Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tractor Supply Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tractor Supply Company shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Tractor Supply Company's SIR currently stands at 6.47. In other words for every 100,000 Tractor Supply Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6470 shares are currently held short.
However Tractor Supply Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tractor Supply Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tractor Supply Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tractor Supply Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tractor Supply Company shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0769% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tractor Supply Company shares, roughly 77 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Tractor Supply Company.

Dividend payout ratio: 24.83% of net profits
Recently Tractor Supply Company has paid out, on average, around 24.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tractor Supply Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tractor Supply Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.6 per share.
While Tractor Supply Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Tractor Supply Company is investing more in its future growth.
Tractor Supply Company's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Tractor Supply Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 September 2013. 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 Tractor Supply Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tractor Supply Company shares which in turn could have impacted Tractor Supply Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Tractor Supply Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $63.8901 up to $157.07. 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 Tractor Supply Company's is 1.0154. This would suggest that Tractor Supply Company's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
