Valuing Darling Ingredients stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Darling Ingredients's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Darling Ingredients's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Darling Ingredients shares trade at around 16x 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.
Darling Ingredients's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 14.47. 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 Darling Ingredients's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Darling Ingredients's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$461.8 million.

There are currently 3.3 million Darling Ingredients shares held short by investors – that's known as Darling Ingredients's "short interest". This figure is 42.7% up from 2.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Darling Ingredients shares can be evaluated.
Darling Ingredients's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Darling Ingredients shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Darling Ingredients shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Darling Ingredients's SIR currently stands at 2.26. In other words for every 100,000 Darling Ingredients shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2260 shares are currently held short.
However Darling Ingredients's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Darling Ingredients shares, or, against the total number of tradable Darling Ingredients shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Darling Ingredients's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Darling Ingredients shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0284% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Darling Ingredients shares, roughly 28 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 Darling Ingredients.

We're not expecting Darling Ingredients to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Darling Ingredients's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 10 November 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Darling Ingredients shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Darling Ingredients shares which in turn could have impacted Darling Ingredients's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Darling Ingredients's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.25 up to $49.84. 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 Darling Ingredients's is 1.3416. This would suggest that Darling Ingredients's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
