Valuing ADTRAN stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ADTRAN's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ADTRAN's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 77x. In other words, ADTRAN stocks trade at around 77x 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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.
ADTRAN's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 11.04. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into ADTRAN's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ADTRAN's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$16.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ADTRAN's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 956,113 ADTRAN stocks held short by investors – that's known as ADTRAN's "short interest". This figure is 0.5% down from 960,615 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ADTRAN stocks can be evaluated.
ADTRAN's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ADTRAN stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ADTRAN stocks traded daily (recently around 233198.29268293). ADTRAN's SIR currently stands at 4.1. In other words for every 100,000 ADTRAN stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4100 stocks are currently held short.
However ADTRAN's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ADTRAN stocks, or, against the total number of tradable ADTRAN stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ADTRAN's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 ADTRAN stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.02% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable ADTRAN stocks, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against ADTRAN.

Dividend payout ratio: 81.82% of net profits
Recently ADTRAN has paid out, on average, around 81.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ADTRAN shareholders could enjoy a 1.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ADTRAN's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.
ADTRAN'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.
ADTRAN's most recent dividend payout was on 2 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 18 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
ADTRAN stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 December 2003. 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 ADTRAN stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for ADTRAN stocks which in turn could have impacted ADTRAN's stock price.
Over the last 12 months, ADTRAN's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $9.4942 up to $21.79. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ADTRAN's is 1.3874. This would suggest that ADTRAN's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
