Valuing Worthington Industries stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Worthington Industries's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Worthington 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 4x. In other words, Worthington Industries shares trade at around 4x 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.
Worthington Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.35. 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 Worthington 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.
Worthington Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$161.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Worthington Industries's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 917,219 Worthington Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Worthington Industries's "short interest". This figure is 19% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Worthington Industries shares can be evaluated.
Worthington Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Worthington Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Worthington Industries shares traded daily (recently around 347431.43939394). Worthington Industries's SIR currently stands at 2.64. In other words for every 100,000 Worthington Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2640 shares are currently held short.
However Worthington Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Worthington Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Worthington Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Worthington Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Worthington Industries shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0269% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Worthington Industries shares, roughly 27 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 Worthington Industries.

Dividend payout ratio: 32.44% of net profits
Recently Worthington Industries has paid out, on average, around 32.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Worthington Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Worthington Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
While Worthington Industries's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Worthington Industries may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Worthington Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Worthington Industries's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 October 1993. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Worthington Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Worthington Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Worthington Industries's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Worthington Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.28 up to $48.5. 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 Worthington Industries's is 1.2901. This would suggest that Worthington 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).
