Valuing Designer Brands stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Designer Brands's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Designer Brands's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Designer Brands shares trade at around 6x 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.
Designer Brands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.61. 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 Designer Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Designer Brands's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$229.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Designer Brands's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 9.0 million Designer Brands shares held short by investors – that's known as Designer Brands's "short interest". This figure is 8.7% up from 8.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Designer Brands shares can be evaluated.
Designer Brands's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Designer Brands shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Designer Brands shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Designer Brands's SIR currently stands at 3.68. In other words for every 100,000 Designer Brands shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3680 shares are currently held short.
However Designer Brands's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Designer Brands shares, or, against the total number of tradable Designer Brands shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Designer Brands's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Designer Brands shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1951% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Designer Brands shares, roughly 195 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 Designer Brands.

We're not expecting Designer Brands to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Designer Brands's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 November 2013. 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 Designer Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Designer Brands shares which in turn could have impacted Designer Brands's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Designer Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.6 up to $19.08. 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 Designer Brands's is 1.8731. This would suggest that Designer Brands's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
