Valuing Trinity Industries stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Trinity Industries's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Trinity Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2926x. In other words, Trinity Industries shares trade at around 2926x 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.
Trinity Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.78. 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 Trinity Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Trinity Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$527.5 million.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 8.1 million Trinity Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Trinity Industries's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% down from 8.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Trinity Industries shares can be evaluated.
Trinity Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Trinity Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Trinity Industries shares traded daily (recently around 919738.47900113). Trinity Industries's SIR currently stands at 8.81. In other words for every 100,000 Trinity Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8810 shares are currently held short.
However Trinity Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Trinity Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Trinity Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Trinity Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Trinity Industries shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1098% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Trinity Industries shares, roughly 110 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 Trinity Industries.

Dividend payout ratio: 2.35% of net profits
Recently Trinity Industries has paid out, on average, around 2.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Trinity Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Trinity Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.78 per share.
While Trinity Industries's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Trinity Industries is investing more in its future growth.
Trinity Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 29 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Trinity Industries's shares were split on a 1389:1000 basis on 31 October 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1389 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Trinity Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 28% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Trinity Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Trinity Industries's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Trinity Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.9262 up to $33.77. 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 Trinity Industries's is 1.417. This would suggest that Trinity Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
