Valuing Gibraltar Industries stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Gibraltar Industries's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Gibraltar Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Gibraltar Industries shares trade at around 25x 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.
Gibraltar Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.02. 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 Gibraltar Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Gibraltar Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$144.5 million.

There are currently 544,731 Gibraltar Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Gibraltar Industries's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 548,604 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Gibraltar Industries shares can be evaluated.
Gibraltar Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gibraltar Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gibraltar Industries shares traded daily (recently around 185282.65306122). Gibraltar Industries's SIR currently stands at 2.94. In other words for every 100,000 Gibraltar Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2940 shares are currently held short.
However Gibraltar Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gibraltar Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gibraltar Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gibraltar Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gibraltar Industries shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0199% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gibraltar Industries shares, roughly 20 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 Gibraltar Industries.

We're not expecting Gibraltar Industries to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Gibraltar Industries's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 November 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Gibraltar Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gibraltar Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Gibraltar Industries's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Gibraltar Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.6 up to $74. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Gibraltar Industries's is 1.243. This would suggest that Gibraltar Industries's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
