Valuing Blue Bird Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Blue Bird Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Blue Bird 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 42x. In other words, Blue Bird Corporation shares trade at around 42x 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.
Blue Bird Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.13. 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 Blue Bird 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.
Blue Bird Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$36.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Blue Bird Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 351,148 Blue Bird Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Blue Bird Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.4% down from 371,268 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Blue Bird Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Blue Bird Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Blue Bird Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Blue Bird Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 82623.058823529). Blue Bird Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.25. In other words for every 100,000 Blue Bird Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4250 shares are currently held short.
However Blue Bird Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Blue Bird Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Blue Bird Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Blue Bird Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Blue Bird Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0226% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Blue Bird Corporation shares, roughly 23 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 Blue Bird Corporation.
