Valuing Hubbell stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hubbell's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hubbell's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Hubbell shares trade at around 24x 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.
Hubbell's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.5069. 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 Hubbell's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Hubbell's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $733.7 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Hubbell's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 342,230 Hubbell shares held short by investors – that's known as Hubbell's "short interest". This figure is 33.5% down from 514,789 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hubbell shares can be evaluated.
Hubbell's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hubbell shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hubbell shares traded daily (recently around 297591.30434783). Hubbell's SIR currently stands at 1.15. In other words for every 100,000 Hubbell shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1150 shares are currently held short.
However Hubbell's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hubbell shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hubbell shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hubbell's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hubbell shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0083% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hubbell shares, roughly 8 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 Hubbell.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Hubbell.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 28.89
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Hubbell's overall score of 28.89 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 51st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Hubbell is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 11.08/100
Hubbell's environmental score of 11.08 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Hubbell is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 16.61/100
Hubbell's social score of 16.61 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Hubbell is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 12.71/100
Hubbell's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Hubbell is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Dividend payout ratio: 48.06% of net profits
Recently Hubbell has paid out, on average, around 48.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hubbell shareholders could enjoy a 2.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hubbell's case, that would currently equate to about $3.92 per share.
While Hubbell's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Hubbell may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Hubbell's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Hubbell's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 August 1996. 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 Hubbell shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hubbell shares which in turn could have impacted Hubbell's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Hubbell's shares have ranged in value from as little as $83.9645 up to $165.367. 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 Hubbell's is 1.1932. This would suggest that Hubbell's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
