Valuing Delta Apparel stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Delta Apparel's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Delta Apparel's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Delta Apparel shares trade at around 9x 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.
Delta Apparel's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9055. 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 Delta Apparel's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Delta Apparel's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$26.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Delta Apparel's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 94,154 Delta Apparel shares held short by investors – that's known as Delta Apparel's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% down from 97,670 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Delta Apparel shares can be evaluated.
Delta Apparel's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Delta Apparel shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Delta Apparel shares traded daily (recently around 15137.29903537). Delta Apparel's SIR currently stands at 6.22. In other words for every 100,000 Delta Apparel shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6220 shares are currently held short.
However Delta Apparel's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Delta Apparel shares, or, against the total number of tradable Delta Apparel shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Delta Apparel's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Delta Apparel shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0174% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Delta Apparel shares, roughly 17 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Delta Apparel.

We're not expecting Delta Apparel to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Delta Apparel's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 June 2005. 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 Delta Apparel shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Delta Apparel shares which in turn could have impacted Delta Apparel's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Delta Apparel's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.532 up to $31.71. 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 Delta Apparel's is 1.6073. This would suggest that Delta Apparel's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
