Valuing DXP Enterprises stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of DXP Enterprises's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
DXP Enterprises's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, DXP Enterprises shares trade at around 14x 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.
DXP Enterprises's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1. 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 DXP Enterprises's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
DXP Enterprises's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$71 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a DXP Enterprises's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 615,250 DXP Enterprises shares held short by investors – that's known as DXP Enterprises's "short interest". This figure is 15.4% up from 533,129 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DXP Enterprises shares can be evaluated.
DXP Enterprises's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DXP Enterprises shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DXP Enterprises shares traded daily (recently around 108701.41342756). DXP Enterprises's SIR currently stands at 5.66. In other words for every 100,000 DXP Enterprises shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5660 shares are currently held short.
However DXP Enterprises's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DXP Enterprises shares, or, against the total number of tradable DXP Enterprises shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DXP Enterprises's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DXP Enterprises shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0448% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DXP Enterprises shares, roughly 45 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 DXP Enterprises.

We're not expecting DXP Enterprises to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
DXP Enterprises's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 October 2008. 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 DXP Enterprises shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for DXP Enterprises shares which in turn could have impacted DXP Enterprises's share price.
Over the last 12 months, DXP Enterprises's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.44 up to $43.94. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
