Valuing Astronics Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Astronics Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Astronics Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Astronics Corporation shares trade at around 6x 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.
Astronics Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4638. 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 Astronics Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Astronics Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$41.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Astronics Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.4 million Astronics Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Astronics Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 25.1% up from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Astronics Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Astronics Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Astronics Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Astronics Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 388097.71428571). Astronics Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.5. In other words for every 100,000 Astronics Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3500 shares are currently held short.
However Astronics Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Astronics Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Astronics Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Astronics Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Astronics Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0881% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Astronics Corporation shares, roughly 88 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 Astronics Corporation.

Astronics Corporation's shares were split on a 1182:1000 basis on 11 October 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1182 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Astronics Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 15.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Astronics Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Astronics Corporation's share price.
