Valuing Conns stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Conns's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Conns's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Conns shares trade at around 3x 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.
Conns's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3778. 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 Conns's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Conns's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$19.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Conns's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.8 million Conns shares held short by investors – that's known as Conns's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% down from 3.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Conns shares can be evaluated.
Conns's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Conns shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Conns shares traded daily (recently around 582734.24369748). Conns's SIR currently stands at 4.76. In other words for every 100,000 Conns shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4760 shares are currently held short.
However Conns's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Conns shares, or, against the total number of tradable Conns shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Conns's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Conns shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1928% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Conns shares, roughly 193 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 Conns.
