Valuing Amtech Systems stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Amtech Systems's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Amtech Systems's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 46x. In other words, Amtech Systems shares trade at around 46x 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.
Amtech Systems's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.84. 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 Amtech Systems's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Amtech Systems's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$810,000.

There are currently 16,858 Amtech Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Amtech Systems's "short interest". This figure is 92.1% up from 8,774 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Amtech Systems shares can be evaluated.
Amtech Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Amtech Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Amtech Systems shares traded daily (recently around 56193.333333333). Amtech Systems's SIR currently stands at 0.3. In other words for every 100,000 Amtech Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 300 shares are currently held short.
However Amtech Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Amtech Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Amtech Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Amtech Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Amtech Systems shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Amtech Systems shares, roughly 2 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 Amtech Systems.

We're not expecting Amtech Systems to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Amtech Systems's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 16 March 1999. So if you had owned 2 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 Amtech Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Amtech Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Amtech Systems's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Amtech Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.55 up to $7.96. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Amtech Systems's is 1.5465. This would suggest that Amtech Systems's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
