Valuing FTI Consulting stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FTI Consulting's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FTI Consulting's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, FTI Consulting shares trade at around 20x 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.
FTI Consulting's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.61. 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 FTI Consulting's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
FTI Consulting's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$312.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a FTI Consulting's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.7 million FTI Consulting shares held short by investors – that's known as FTI Consulting's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% up from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FTI Consulting shares can be evaluated.
FTI Consulting's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FTI Consulting shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FTI Consulting shares traded daily (recently around 387588.91402715). FTI Consulting's SIR currently stands at 4.42. In other words for every 100,000 FTI Consulting shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4420 shares are currently held short.
However FTI Consulting's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FTI Consulting shares, or, against the total number of tradable FTI Consulting shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FTI Consulting's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FTI Consulting shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0721% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FTI Consulting shares, roughly 72 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 FTI Consulting.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for FTI Consulting shares which in turn could have impacted FTI Consulting's share price.
