Valuing Weyerhaeuser Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Weyerhaeuser Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Weyerhaeuser 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 44x. In other words, Weyerhaeuser Company shares trade at around 44x 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.
Weyerhaeuser Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.445. 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 Weyerhaeuser 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.
Weyerhaeuser Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.6 billion.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.9 million Weyerhaeuser Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Weyerhaeuser Company's "short interest". This figure is 16.1% down from 7.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Weyerhaeuser Company shares can be evaluated.
Weyerhaeuser Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Weyerhaeuser Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Weyerhaeuser Company shares traded daily (recently around 3.9 million). Weyerhaeuser Company's SIR currently stands at 1.51. In other words for every 100,000 Weyerhaeuser Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1510 shares are currently held short.
However Weyerhaeuser Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Weyerhaeuser Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Weyerhaeuser Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Weyerhaeuser Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Weyerhaeuser Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0093% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Weyerhaeuser Company shares, roughly 9 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 Weyerhaeuser Company.

Recently Weyerhaeuser Company has paid out, on average, around 101.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Weyerhaeuser Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Weyerhaeuser Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.85 per share.
Weyerhaeuser Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Weyerhaeuser Company's most recent dividend payout was on 18 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Weyerhaeuser Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 July 2010. 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 Weyerhaeuser Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Weyerhaeuser Company shares which in turn could have impacted Weyerhaeuser Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Weyerhaeuser Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.1 up to $31.2013. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
