Valuing Five Below stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Five Below's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Five Below's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 77x. In other words, Five Below shares trade at around 77x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Five Below's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5954. 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 Five Below's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 5.0 million Five Below shares held short by investors – that's known as Five Below's "short interest". This figure is 7.3% down from 5.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Five Below shares can be evaluated.
Five Below's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Five Below shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Five Below shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Five Below's SIR currently stands at 4.54. In other words for every 100,000 Five Below shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4540 shares are currently held short.
However Five Below's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Five Below shares, or, against the total number of tradable Five Below shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Five Below's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Five Below shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0922% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Five Below shares, roughly 92 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 Five Below.
