Valuing B-and-G Foods stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of B-and-G Foods's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
B-and-G Foods's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, B-and-G Foods shares trade at around 13x 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.
B-and-G Foods's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.93. 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 B-and-G Foods's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
B-and-G Foods's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$355 million.

There are currently 18.1 million B-and-G Foods shares held short by investors – that's known as B-and-G Foods's "short interest". This figure is 1.6% down from 18.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting B-and-G Foods shares can be evaluated.
B-and-G Foods's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of B-and-G Foods shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of B-and-G Foods shares traded daily (recently around 732342.66017843). B-and-G Foods's SIR currently stands at 24.66. In other words for every 100,000 B-and-G Foods shares traded daily on the market, roughly 24660 shares are currently held short.
However B-and-G Foods's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of B-and-G Foods shares, or, against the total number of tradable B-and-G Foods shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case B-and-G Foods's short interest could be expressed as 0.28% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 B-and-G Foods shares in existence, roughly 280 shares are currently held short) or 0.4055% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable B-and-G Foods shares, roughly 406 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against B-and-G Foods.
