Valuing BioLife Solutions stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BioLife Solutions's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BioLife Solutions's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, BioLife Solutions shares trade at around 38x 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.
BioLife Solutions's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 39.2857. 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 BioLife Solutions's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
BioLife Solutions's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.9 million.

There are currently 1.7 million BioLife Solutions shares held short by investors – that's known as BioLife Solutions's "short interest". This figure is 34.3% up from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BioLife Solutions shares can be evaluated.
BioLife Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BioLife Solutions shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BioLife Solutions shares traded daily (recently around 428863). BioLife Solutions's SIR currently stands at 4. In other words for every 100,000 BioLife Solutions shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4000 shares are currently held short.
However BioLife Solutions's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BioLife Solutions shares, or, against the total number of tradable BioLife Solutions shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BioLife Solutions's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BioLife Solutions shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0705% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BioLife Solutions shares, roughly 71 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 BioLife Solutions.

We're not expecting BioLife Solutions to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
BioLife Solutions's shares were split on a 1:14 basis on 29 January 2014. So if you had owned 14 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 BioLife Solutions shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for BioLife Solutions shares which in turn could have impacted BioLife Solutions's share price.
Over the last 12 months, BioLife Solutions's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.37 up to $30.27. 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 BioLife Solutions's is 1.4424. This would suggest that BioLife Solutions's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
