Valuing Genesco stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Genesco's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Genesco's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Genesco shares trade at around 9x 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.
Genesco's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.69. 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 Genesco's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Genesco's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$43.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Genesco's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.5 million Genesco shares held short by investors – that's known as Genesco's "short interest". This figure is 22.2% down from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Genesco shares can be evaluated.
Genesco's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genesco shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genesco shares traded daily (recently around 395404.14507772). Genesco's SIR currently stands at 3.86. In other words for every 100,000 Genesco shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3860 shares are currently held short.
However Genesco's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genesco shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genesco shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genesco's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genesco shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1491% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genesco shares, roughly 149 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 Genesco.
