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 115x. In other words, ADTRAN shares trade at around 115x 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.
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 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 ADTRAN's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ADTRAN's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.7 million (£0.0 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 975,127 ADTRAN shares held short by investors – that's known as ADTRAN's "short interest". This figure is 21.9% up from 799,659 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ADTRAN shares can be evaluated.
ADTRAN's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ADTRAN shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ADTRAN shares traded daily (recently around 309564.12698413). ADTRAN's SIR currently stands at 3.15. In other words for every 100,000 ADTRAN shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3150 shares are currently held short.
However ADTRAN's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ADTRAN shares, or, against the total number of tradable ADTRAN shares (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 shares (for every 100,000 ADTRAN shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0282% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ADTRAN shares, roughly 28 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 ADTRAN.

Dividend payout ratio: 450% of net profits
Recently ADTRAN has paid out, on average, around 450% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.4% 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 2.4% 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 1 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
ADTRAN's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 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 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ADTRAN shares which in turn could have impacted ADTRAN's share price.
Over the last 12 months, ADTRAN's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.6917 up to $15.6. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ADTRAN's is 1.3407. This would suggest that ADTRAN's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
