Valuing BlueLinx stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BlueLinx's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BlueLinx's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, BlueLinx shares trade at around 5x 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.
BlueLinx's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$131.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a BlueLinx's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 178,929 BlueLinx shares held short by investors – that's known as BlueLinx's "short interest". This figure is 41.6% down from 306,344 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BlueLinx shares can be evaluated.
BlueLinx's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BlueLinx shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BlueLinx shares traded daily (recently around 142007.14285714). BlueLinx's SIR currently stands at 1.26. In other words for every 100,000 BlueLinx shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1260 shares are currently held short.
However BlueLinx's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BlueLinx shares, or, against the total number of tradable BlueLinx shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BlueLinx's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BlueLinx shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0228% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BlueLinx 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 BlueLinx.

We're not expecting BlueLinx to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
BlueLinx's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 14 June 2016. So if you had owned 10 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 BlueLinx shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for BlueLinx shares which in turn could have impacted BlueLinx's share price.
Over the last 12 months, BlueLinx's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.6 up to $30.35. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while BlueLinx's is 2.2551. This would suggest that BlueLinx's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
