Valuing General Finance Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of General Finance Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
General Finance Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 111x. In other words, General Finance Corporation shares trade at around 111x 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.
General Finance Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9617. 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 General Finance Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
General Finance Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$91.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a General Finance Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 126,723 General Finance Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as General Finance Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.8% up from 116,514 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting General Finance Corporation shares can be evaluated.
General Finance Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of General Finance Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of General Finance Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 16918.958611482). General Finance Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.49. In other words for every 100,000 General Finance Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7490 shares are currently held short.
However General Finance Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of General Finance Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable General Finance Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case General Finance Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 General Finance Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0122% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable General Finance Corporation shares, roughly 12 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 General Finance Corporation.
