Valuing Celestica stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Celestica's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Celestica's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Celestica shares trade at around 12x 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.
Celestica's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 19.42. 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 Celestica's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Celestica's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$204.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Celestica's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 495,279 Celestica shares held short by investors – that's known as Celestica's "short interest". This figure is 15.8% down from 588,012 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Celestica shares can be evaluated.
Celestica's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Celestica shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Celestica shares traded daily (recently around 364175.73529412). Celestica's SIR currently stands at 1.36. In other words for every 100,000 Celestica shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1360 shares are currently held short.
However Celestica's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Celestica shares, or, against the total number of tradable Celestica shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Celestica's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Celestica shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0056% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Celestica shares, roughly 6 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 Celestica.

We're not expecting Celestica to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Celestica's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 December 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Celestica shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Celestica shares which in turn could have impacted Celestica's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Celestica's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.63 up to $9.29. 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 Celestica's is 2.6094. This would suggest that Celestica's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
