Valuing Wolverine World Wide stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Wolverine World Wide's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Wolverine World Wide's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 70x. In other words, Wolverine World Wide shares trade at around 70x 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.
Wolverine World Wide's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.72. 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 Wolverine World Wide's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Wolverine World Wide's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$118.3 million.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.1 million Wolverine World Wide shares held short by investors – that's known as Wolverine World Wide's "short interest". This figure is 7.5% down from 4.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Wolverine World Wide shares can be evaluated.
Wolverine World Wide's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wolverine World Wide shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wolverine World Wide shares traded daily (recently around 457380.9255079). Wolverine World Wide's SIR currently stands at 8.86. In other words for every 100,000 Wolverine World Wide shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8860 shares are currently held short.
However Wolverine World Wide's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wolverine World Wide shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wolverine World Wide shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wolverine World Wide's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wolverine World Wide shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0686% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wolverine World Wide shares, roughly 69 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 Wolverine World Wide.

Dividend payout ratio: 30.77% of net profits
Recently Wolverine World Wide has paid out, on average, around 30.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wolverine World Wide shareholders could enjoy a 1.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wolverine World Wide's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
While Wolverine World Wide's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Wolverine World Wide may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Wolverine World Wide's most recent dividend payout was on 1 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Wolverine World Wide's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 November 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 Wolverine World Wide shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Wolverine World Wide shares which in turn could have impacted Wolverine World Wide's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Wolverine World Wide's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.0905 up to $34.1997. 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 Wolverine World Wide's is 1.7525. This would suggest that Wolverine World Wide's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
