Valuing Valhi stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Valhi's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Valhi's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Valhi shares trade at around 13x 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.
Valhi's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.32. 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 Valhi's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Valhi's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$168.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Valhi's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 9,936 Valhi shares held short by investors – that's known as Valhi's "short interest". This figure is 10.9% down from 11,148 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Valhi shares can be evaluated.
Valhi's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Valhi shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Valhi shares traded daily (recently around 8420.3389830508). Valhi's SIR currently stands at 1.18. In other words for every 100,000 Valhi shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1180 shares are currently held short.
However Valhi's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Valhi shares, or, against the total number of tradable Valhi shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Valhi's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Valhi shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0042% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Valhi shares, roughly 4 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 Valhi.

Dividend payout ratio: 33.79% of net profits
Recently Valhi has paid out, on average, around 33.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Valhi shareholders could enjoy a 1.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Valhi's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.
While Valhi's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Valhi may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Valhi's most recent dividend payout was on 17 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Valhi's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 2 June 2020. So if you had owned 12 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Valhi shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Valhi shares which in turn could have impacted Valhi's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Valhi's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.9227 up to $22.8789. 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 Valhi's is 1.9955. This would suggest that Valhi's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
