Valuing Aerojet Rocketdyne stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Aerojet Rocketdyne's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Aerojet Rocketdyne's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, Aerojet Rocketdyne shares trade at around 35x 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.
Aerojet Rocketdyne's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.591. 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 Aerojet Rocketdyne's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Aerojet Rocketdyne's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$269.9 million.

There are currently 5.3 million Aerojet Rocketdyne shares held short by investors – that's known as Aerojet Rocketdyne's "short interest". This figure is 22.2% up from 4.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Aerojet Rocketdyne shares can be evaluated.
Aerojet Rocketdyne's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aerojet Rocketdyne shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aerojet Rocketdyne shares traded daily (recently around 731434.01920439). Aerojet Rocketdyne's SIR currently stands at 7.29. In other words for every 100,000 Aerojet Rocketdyne shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7290 shares are currently held short.
However Aerojet Rocketdyne's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aerojet Rocketdyne shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aerojet Rocketdyne shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aerojet Rocketdyne's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aerojet Rocketdyne shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1067% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aerojet Rocketdyne shares, roughly 107 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Aerojet Rocketdyne.
