Valuing Air Transport Services Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Air Transport Services Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Air Transport Services Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Air Transport Services Group shares trade at around 25x 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.
Air Transport Services Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 56.16. 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 Air Transport Services Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Air Transport Services Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$476.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Air Transport Services Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.0 million Air Transport Services Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Air Transport Services Group's "short interest". This figure is 15.9% down from 2.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Air Transport Services Group shares can be evaluated.
Air Transport Services Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Air Transport Services Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Air Transport Services Group shares traded daily (recently around 474197.59036145). Air Transport Services Group's SIR currently stands at 4.15. In other words for every 100,000 Air Transport Services Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4150 shares are currently held short.
However Air Transport Services Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Air Transport Services Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Air Transport Services Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Air Transport Services Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Air Transport Services Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0338% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Air Transport Services Group shares, roughly 34 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 Air Transport Services Group.
