Valuing Allied Motion Technologies stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Allied Motion Technologies's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Allied Motion Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, Allied Motion Technologies shares trade at around 33x 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.
Allied Motion Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.09. 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 Allied Motion Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Allied Motion Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$39.8 million.

There are currently 120,714 Allied Motion Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Allied Motion Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 43.6% up from 84,058 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Allied Motion Technologies shares can be evaluated.
Allied Motion Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Allied Motion Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Allied Motion Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 36469.486404834). Allied Motion Technologies's SIR currently stands at 3.31. In other words for every 100,000 Allied Motion Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3310 shares are currently held short.
However Allied Motion Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allied Motion Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allied Motion Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allied Motion Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allied Motion Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0157% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allied Motion Technologies shares, roughly 16 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 Allied Motion Technologies.

Dividend payout ratio: 7.95% of net profits
Recently Allied Motion Technologies has paid out, on average, around 7.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Allied Motion Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 0.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Allied Motion Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.
While Allied Motion Technologies's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Allied Motion Technologies is investing more in its future growth.
Allied Motion Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 2 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Allied Motion Technologies's shares were split on a 102:100 basis on 25 August 1986. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 102 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Allied Motion Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Allied Motion Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Allied Motion Technologies's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Allied Motion Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.9315 up to $51.83. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Allied Motion Technologies's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
