Valuing Acadia Healthcare Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Acadia Healthcare Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Acadia Healthcare Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 43x. In other words, Acadia Healthcare Company shares trade at around 43x 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.
Acadia Healthcare Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.32. 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 Acadia Healthcare Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Acadia Healthcare Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$561.8 million.

There are currently 6.1 million Acadia Healthcare Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Acadia Healthcare Company's "short interest". This figure is 16.4% down from 7.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Acadia Healthcare Company shares can be evaluated.
Acadia Healthcare Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Acadia Healthcare Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Acadia Healthcare Company shares traded daily (recently around 601888.54064642). Acadia Healthcare Company's SIR currently stands at 10.21. In other words for every 100,000 Acadia Healthcare Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10210 shares are currently held short.
However Acadia Healthcare Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Acadia Healthcare Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Acadia Healthcare Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Acadia Healthcare Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Acadia Healthcare Company shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0989% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Acadia Healthcare Company shares, roughly 99 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Acadia Healthcare Company.

Acadia Healthcare Company's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 1 November 2011. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Acadia Healthcare Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Acadia Healthcare Company shares which in turn could have impacted Acadia Healthcare Company's share price.
