Valuing Generac stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Generac's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Generac's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 50x. In other words, Generac shares trade at around 50x 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.
Generac's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.389. 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 Generac's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Generac's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$487.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Generac's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.0 million Generac shares held short by investors – that's known as Generac's "short interest". This figure is 43.4% up from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Generac shares can be evaluated.
Generac's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Generac shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Generac shares traded daily (recently around 958035.9223301). Generac's SIR currently stands at 2.06. In other words for every 100,000 Generac shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2060 shares are currently held short.
However Generac's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Generac shares, or, against the total number of tradable Generac shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Generac's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Generac shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0361% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Generac shares, roughly 36 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 Generac.

We're not expecting Generac to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Generac's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 10 February 2010. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Generac shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Generac shares which in turn could have impacted Generac's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Generac's shares have ranged in value from as little as $75.5 up to $237.99. 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 Generac's is 0.9312. This would suggest that Generac's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
