Valuing Colfax Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Colfax Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Colfax 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 111x. In other words, Colfax Corporation shares trade at around 111x 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.
Colfax Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5588. 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 Colfax 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.
Colfax Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$518.1 million.

There are currently 18.7 million Colfax Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Colfax Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4% up from 18.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Colfax Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Colfax Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Colfax Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Colfax Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 956260.52227343). Colfax Corporation's SIR currently stands at 19.53. In other words for every 100,000 Colfax Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 19530 shares are currently held short.
However Colfax Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Colfax Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Colfax Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Colfax Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.16% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Colfax Corporation shares in existence, roughly 160 shares are currently held short) or 0.2018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Colfax Corporation shares, roughly 202 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Colfax Corporation.
